Forest Guardians

Making our world sustainable through engagement and education, with a passion to make a change.

Our goal is to mitigate the climate crisis and help nature recover its lost bio-diversity within our cities and surrounding areas. Our volunteers are involved in something that will truly make a difference. 

Learn more about native species, improve leadership skills, and gain valuable experience.

Be part of the solution in a climate-focused, positive movement

We are not just procrastinating, we are doing something right now. Urbem’s Fast Forests are fully sustainable within 2-3 years of planting and have proven to sequester 265% more CO2 per acre than traditional forests.

Invest in the future of yourself and your community

As a resident of the city, your future is directly connected to the future of the city. Help us protect the city and take practical measures to cool the city and promote the health and wellbeing of its residents.

Learn from experienced professionals

All our team leads come with more than 15 years’ professional experience in their respective fields

Our volunteers are our biggest asset!
