The idea of generation forest comes from our Panamanian founder Iliana Armién. After she had to witness the clearing of a big forest by her own father, she decided to make a change. She and her partner developed the generation forest to change the way tropical reforestation is done. The Problem with current reforestation projects is that they often exploit the people and the environment. To enable generation forests, she founded our cooperative with the support from people in Germany and the world.
