- Organisation de l'environnement
OroVerde (= green gold) was founded in 1989 by some celebrities of commerce and the natural sciences. This recognised charitable trust focuses on concrete, sustainable, effective contributions to the conservation of tropical forests. There is a small interdisciplinary management team based in Bonn, which organises and coordinates the work.
Since its foundation, OroVerde has initiated protection projects, drawn them up and given them financial backing. The projects are carried out by elected, reliable partners on the spot. OroVerde experts constantly monitor the projects and supervise the use of funds.
The core aspects of the projects are reafforestation, environment education, the introduction of forest-friendly commerce, the establishment of protected areas – always helping people to help themselves. The main countries at the moment are Guatemala, Honduras, Cuba, Ecuador, Venezuela and Indonesia.
In Germany the emphasis is on environment education and information relating to tropical forests, as well as the promotion of information-sharing between nature conservancy organisations, commerce, science and politics. Activities are carried out to further awareness of the topic of tropical forests.
Dr. Volkhard Wille is the full-time manager of the trust.
