Our tree planting project in August

Together with our community and our partner One Tree Planted, we are committed to tree planting campaigns around the world. In August, we're supporting a tree planting project in Panama. Learn why the actions are so important and what you can do in this blog.

Panama (Spanish: Panamá) is a state in Central America, bordering Costa Rica to the west and Colombia to the east. In August 2023, NIKIN is literally putting down roots here and giving wings to an important reforestation project. Our mission: to restore a stretch of land that has been affected by excessive cattle ranching.

The road to reforestation

We are working with local communities to plant mixed forests of native tree species here, manage them and monitor them over the coming years. Through this project, we not only create jobs, but also improve the lives of the local community.

Power of the community

Our efforts extend far beyond restoring Panama's precious biodiversity. The Azuero Ecological Corridor Reforestation project has also forged a partnership with the Panamanian Prison Service: during their final year in prison, inmates are given the chance to engage in community service through the project. This initiative not only shines a bright light on the Sustainable Development Goals, but also creates a positive interaction between the environment and the community.
