Green Survivat is a foundation promoting awareness of Suriname’s nature, with its primary focus on the Upper Suriname area.

Our vision

Enabling people to extract the broadest possible range of forest products in a sustainable manner. We accomplish this by frequent visits to village communities where we either establish community based projects or maintain existing projects on a result-oriented course.

Our mission

Helping communities to preserve their forests while gradually leading them into a financially sustainable livelihood.

Our values

Helping to preserve the traditions that make up the culture of the various Maroon communities and increasing the public awareness of other rural groups in Suriname.
