The OneCoWork Mission With ForestNation

As a coworking space we have a huge responsibility to lead the way in which the world works. We want to grow with the world, not against it. So, we’ve introduced The Green Membership to all of our membership plans. This allows our current and future members to positively impact the world around them as their businesses grow.

What Exactly is OneCoWork?

At OneCoWork, we believe that the key foundations of growth are innovation, collaboration and creativity. Our workspaces are designed to both inspire you every morning and to foster a sense of community, bringing together young talent, freelancers, startups, SMEs and large corporates. 

With regular lectures from world-renowned professors and workshops from both professional services and business leaders, a OneCoWork membership is not just about coming to work, it’s about expanding your horizons and fulfilling your business and personal potential.

Meet the People Behind the Initiative

We’ve created our first ever Positive Initiative Committee, otherwise known as: The Joyful Committee. The Joyful Committee is a collection of staff that are concerned about how we grow and have the influence and the ambition to re-root our growth toward a more positive future.

“ForestNation is an amazing project that aims not only to contribute to the environment but to enrich the business ecosystem, helping companies engage with their employees and customers alike. Due to Andrew, the founder, having a membership with us this initiative could not have been any easier to implement or filled with any more heart. We believe this project is having a positive impact on the OneCoWork community both here in Barcelona and overseas and we absolutely trust that together we can make the world better.” – OneCoWork

More Positive Initiatives From OneCoWork

OneCowork collaborated with NGO “Homeless Entrepreneur” on an event where members, friends and restaurants were able to donate anything from clothes and food, to haircuts for the homeless in Barcelona. We collected over 500 meals, loads of clothes and came together at Arc de Triumph to give homeless people the chance to get haircuts, grab something to eat and have a chat. A few of us spent the night with the homeless under the arc the triumph with the intention of creating awareness of the problems they face in the streets.

FAQs

ForestNation is a social business. We combine commercial, social and environmental goals equally. We empower individuals, companies and organizations to fulfill their own missions whilst growing a forest and creating sustainable livelihoods. We believe that giving back to Mother Earth should be fun and inspiring.

CO2: A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of carbon dioxide per year on average throughout its lifetime.
O2: Trees breathe out oxygen 4 to 5 times the amount of CO2 they absorb each year.
Land reforested: 1000 trees per hectare is a general reforestation best practice.
Jobs created: It takes 68 hours for 1 caretaker to create 10000 tree seedlings and 1 hour per day to maintain them. That translates to 40 hours of work for every 1000 trees.

For every 10,000 trees planted at least double that will germinate naturally within 5 years providing for generations to come. Also the forest provides habitat & shade for animals, natural resources for locals and adds to the beauty of the region.

We plant in the forests of Tanzania, Haiti, Uganda, Malawi, Madagascar and more. All our Tree Planting Projects create sustainable livelihoods. All the trees absorb CO2, offset carbon emissions and contribute towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. More details about where we plant trees for each campaign are explained on the campaign page.

We work closely with our local tree nurseries to ensure bests practices are followed. They use agroforestry techniques where trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland to increase natural reforestation and biodiversity as nature intended.

We mostly plant trees which provide harvest to the local communities. For example, fruit trees are planted around schools in Tanzania to provide nutrition to the children. Our trees also help avoid land degradation. For example, trees were planted along the Lushoto water catchment basin, which supplies fresh water to over 20,000 people in the Lushoto Township and is important to prevent future stream bank erosion.

It takes 8 to 9 months for tree seedlings to be prepped for plantation. Different species are stocked up and made ready for planting during favorable seasons. For example, our Tanzanian nursery plants from March to June and October to December.

A Tree kit has everything you need to grow a tree from seed. We plant matching trees for every tree kit you get as a gift. We also plant matching trees whenever you name your Tree on ForestNation.

Trees connect you with Mother Earth and ignite your nurturing instinct. Growing something from seed helps you experiencing nature’s magic and give back. Tree kits also support our local Tree kit maker (1000 kits create a full day of work).
