To generate sustainable approaches to engage local communities in nature conservation projects
We all depend on the Earth’s resources for our livelihoods and our survival, either directly or indirectly.
People around the world fish, farm, log and hunt for food, shelter and other necessities for their families and communities. However, these resources are finite. If we harvest and use them in unsustainable ways, the resources we need will eventually run out. Therefore, the goal of the innovation factory is to promote sustainable approaches for the benefit of nature and people.
Nature conservation is more successful when the local population can participate actively in its implementation. Hence, we are working with conservationists and local communities to develop innovative ways in which people can use their resources to generate income while promoting natural resource conservation. We are also networking and sharing expertise and knowledge across the four project implementing countries, namely Ghana, Germany, Indonesia and Mexico.
We are the future4nature Team – for the benefit of nature and people!
