Trees for Hope is an evolving organisation serving a big dream. To rewild the Fertile Crescent, or to heal our ecological and socially devastated landscapes in the Middle East is a frontier task for humanity ... that may seem impossible. And yet we hold a beautiful dream of possible tomorrows. This dream keeps us alive and fuels our passion. Our collective dream moves us to move the world.
Our Vision A restored and healthy eco-system in the Hyrcanian Forest, Fertile Crescent, and Anatolia, supported and maintained by healthy and resilient communities. Mission We empower communities to respond in life-affirming ways to our planet's crisis for a healthy and thriving eco-system. The communities draw strength, inspiration and wisdom from Nature to live fulfilled, meaningful, and happy lives.
Goal Offering 4 Ecovillage Design Education courses a year to communities across the Fertile Crescent and Hyrcanian Forest, with an emphasis to connect with land and design rewilding projects with communities, municipalities, and local government.
Following each Ecovillage Design Education course, Trees for Hope offers an Active Restoration Camp to the local and international participants to integrate our desire to be part of the solution for earth healing, grounded in practical action and service to our ecosystems.
Our goal fulfils United Nation's Sustainable Development Goal 15, namely to protect, restore, promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss. Trees for Hope promotes and supports the ecological restoration of degraded ecosystems in Fertile Crescent and Hyrcanian Forest. We provide education, training, and resources for communities and partner organisations to enable local people to become active in returning their degraded landscapes and watercourses to a condition of sound ecological health. Trees for Hope is realising this Vision with partners, collaborators, and friends around and across the world.
