Forests Without Frontiers
Protecting the last ancient forests
Forests Without Frontiers is a non-profit organisation set up to plant trees around the world. Our vision is to help create bio-diverse nature havens, working in collaboration with local partners and NGOs, planting new trees and restoring wild nature on land that will be fully dedicated to conservation.
Our first two projects of rewilding and reforestation are in Romania’s Carpathian mountains — home to Europe’s largest unfragmented virgin forests — with more initiatives planned globally.
With deforestation around the world at record levels and the climate in meltdown, there has never been a more important time to plant trees — the lungs of our earth. By planting trees, we can all be part of the solution.
DJ/Producer Nico de Transilvania was inspired to set up FWF after a recent trip to Romania to record traditional musicians in Transylvania’s mountains for her debut album “Be One”, to be released in 2019. Nico wanted to have a positive impact on the musicians’ environment and all proceeds from the album sale will go towards planting oak trees in the area where they live.
“I’ve realised that environmental preservation is intrinsically linked with the protection of our ancient traditions, instruments and folk songs. If we lose the forests, we lose the communities that live in them, and their culture is dispersed. We need to protect both, as these people are the guardians of the forests and they have so much to teach us. My intention with this initiative is to encourage fellow artists to become the voice of the forests and inspire the younger generation, in particular, to engage in the preservation of their own environment,” says Nico.
