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.

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.

Why ForestNation?

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.

You Plant We Plant Impact

We plant matching trees for every Tree growing kit that companies give to their community, teams or customers. Our nurseries in developing countries like Tanzania plant and take care of these trees as they grow into a forest. We also plant more when people name their Trees on ForestNation.

For every 1000 matching trees ‘We Plant’:

  • 25 tons harmful Carbon Dioxide is offset per year
  • 100 tons of Oxygen is created per year
  • 40 hours of employment is guaranteed for local people
  • 1 hectare of degraded land is reforested

For every 1000 Trees ‘You Plant’:

  • 1000 people are connected to nature
  • 8 hours of work created for our Tree kit makers

We use locally harvested tree seeds in each Tree kit, so people can nurture home grown trees. Each kit is handmade with love by local Tree experts. Every element of the Tree kit is either compostable of biodegradable, leaving zero waste behind.

A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of atmospheric Carbon Dioxide per year. That translates to 25 tons of CO2 absorbed per year for 1000 trees. To put this in perspective, around 25 tons of CO2 is emitted per year by 5 passenger vehicles.

Please note that the CO2 aborption per year is a weighted average. This is because trees have low CO2 absorbing capacity in their early years, peaking as they gain maturity and then slowing down as they grow older.

You can learn more about the calculations here.

On average trees produce 4 to 5 times the amount of co2 they sequester each year depending on the species. So we are basing our CO2 number as a conservative estimate at 4 times.

We plant 1000 trees per hectare as a general standard of reforestation and agroforestry practices. This allows for adequate space for the trees to grow naturally as part of the forest.

It takes 68 hours for 1 person to create 10000 tree seedlings. Then approximately 1 hour per day to maintain every 1000 seedlings.

All this translates 40 hours of work created at our nurseries for every 1000 trees.
