This week in Nangu – #2

Welcome to our weekly update! We’re now in the middle of May and first of all hope that you are well! At Nangu, we currently work fully distributed with Francisco based in Costa Rica, Ruben in France and Nikolai in The Netherlands. Because of Covid, there are things we can not currently do, like exploring potential plots of land. At the same time, it allows us to focus on other areas in our journey towards the first Nangu village, like defining our governance model. In short, we’re adapting to the current reality.

Introducing Nangu – Growing a forest to call home

Fortunately there is a way to revert the damage, regenerate our forests, produce healthy food and care for the people.
