About us

The Partner Forest Program is run by our team at Pilot Projects Design Collective and operates in tandem with the Cities4Forests initiative to engage global cities with tropical forest conservation.


We believe that cities and tropical forests are intrinsically linked, and that they must examine what they consume and who they consume it from in order to determine their impact on areas far beyond their perceived borders.
