Global Diversity Foundation (GDF) is a UK registered charity and a US 501(c)3 organisation with a vision to protect the natural environment and enhance socioecological wellbeing. We aspire to achieve dignity, justice and respect for all beings.
Optimism and a firm belief in the positive power of human action is at the core of our work and we are inspired everyday by the people we work with. Whether it’s the Amazigh communities of the High Atlas Mountains whose traditional cultural practices have for millennia sustained the region’s rich biodiversity and local livelihoods, or our Global Environments Network and its 330 – and counting! – dynamic environmental changemakers who are promoting social and environmental justice across the globe.
GDF believes that the relentless gloomy narrative that dominates our media is detrimental to inspiring the change or social action required to transform our world. We choose to counter that narrative by celebrating solutions and the central role that people play in conserving biodiversity, ecosystems and cultural landscapes.
We are pleased to be part of the dynamic and inspirational Conservation Optimism Network and join other organisations that share these values and celebrate successes to help build an optimistic conservation movement that will inspire society to take positive action.
