OpenForests builds technology at the service of people and nature. We develop tools for forest restoration and conservation projects to manage their data, communicate their impact openly, immerse stakeholders in the place of the project, and build networks of supporters.
OpenForests offers custom forest information services and a map-based project presentation platform, explorer.land.
Years working together
The “ecosystem” OpenForests has grown into a multidisciplinary team, covering the knowledge of forest domain knowledge, computer and data science, forest policy, economics, natural resources management, sustainable development, and communications. Our complementary skills and experience got united by sharing the same values.
Join our Team
Join the OpenForests team and build together a more healthier future for all of us.
We believe that another world is possible. A world where human and nonhuman beings flourish alongside each other. A world where people are not masters of but part of what we call nature. For this to happen, we need a collective change of consciousness and to rebuild connectedness with the diversity of all life.
The ultimate goal is to give back voices to the people and give faces to their projects.
We empower people in making more biodiverse, resilient, social, and transparent forest projects.
We were not happy about the state of the world and how everyone was operating and searched for fields to improve.
In moments of deep friendship, we sometimes develop ideas of changing the world for the better. And this is the story of OpenForests and how it all started. In a tiny kitchen, late at night, we – Stefan, Patrick, and Alexander – were discussing our concerns over the state of the world’s affairs: injustice, politics, ethics, and exploitation of nature.
Mostly after such discussions the next morning you swallow down your idealism with a good cup of coffee and go back to business as usual.
This time was different!
