What We Do

 

Global Diversity Foundation is a non-profit organisation that protects the natural environment and enhances people’s wellbeing. We aspire to achieve dignity, justice and respect for all beings.

Through our regional programmes, we support communities as they improve their livelihoods while maintaining their cultural landscapes, conserving their biocultural diversity and building their capacities and institutions. We provide mentorship to environmental and indigenous organisations as they strengthen their capacities, operational systems and funding base. Through our Global Migrants Project, we contribute to migrant wellbeing and justice at locations of origin, transition and destination. Our Global Environments Network promotes collaboration and innovation, fosters peer-learning and enhances the knowledge, networking and communications skills of emerging environmental changemakers.

 

Celebrating a decade and a half of work to protect biocultural diversity, enhance local sovereignty and catalyse learning and action for transformation

Global Diversity Foundation’s work began in 2000 with a broad vision of supporting agricultural, biological and cultural diversity. We have sought to promote biocultural diversity around the world through research, training and practical action. Over the last 15 years – in the field with communities and internationally with environmental changemakers – our mission has evolved to encompass a focus on environmental and social justice, community resilience and wellbeing in the face of global change.
