Where we come from
Today we unite many members from all over the world that share the same goal. Our members are from 8 month to 88 years old. We are students, young parents, older parents, children, CEOs, teachers, eco-conscious people, traditionals, truck drivers, doctors, pensioners, NGOs, foundations and businesses. Our members are from Columbia, Germany, Panama, Malaysia, Switzerland, France, Austria, Spain, USA and Bolivia. All came together to plant a new form of forests.
As an organization we are new, but we have deep roots. Our work is based on 25 years of experience of our forestry partners Futuro Forestal. Iliana Armién and Andreas Eke, the founders of Futuro Forestal, together with eleven founding members, originally founded the cooperative under the name Waldmenschen eG. Our diverse team came from the most different directions: Tax law, investment, ecology, management, risk analysis, wood sciences and forestry. As more and more people from all over the world joined the cooperative, we decided in 2019 to carry the name of our forestry concept: The Generation Forest.
