Who we are
Urbem is a social collective made up entirely of a diverse passionate and driven group of volunteers (currently 26 people and 16 nationalities) who are working together towards a common vision of reconnecting people to forests, the earth and each other.
We already have an amazing opportunity to create a fast forest in Bela Vista Park in Lisbon, which will become a hub of sustainability education, art, and events such as theatre and concerts and social gatherings.
Join us and become part of a fun and interesting group with similar values who frequently meet for social events. We are looking for people with many different kinds of skills who can commit to regularly helping us for at least three months.
Why join us
- 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.
