Worldview International Foundation

When Worldview was established at the dawn of the communication revolution, I believed it would change the world.

It did.

The vision of bringing public education by new effective methods and technologies to the disadvantaged was worth the efforts of nearly 40 years of pioneering activities in 26 countries.
Today we live in a global village. It is threatened by Climate Change. Our vision and commitment to this challenge will determine living conditions for our children, grandchildren and future generations. This is the most fundamental challenge in human history. We have quickly to act with effective solutions. Restoring lost mangrove forests is a practical, meaningful contribution in strengthening nature’s own methods for climate balance, tested during thousands of years. Plating miracle mangrove trees is more than a vision, it is a celebration for life on Earth. Believing in a liveable future is more than a dream, it is a commitment to our global village.
