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 to act quickly with effective solutions. Restoring lost mangrove forests is a practical, meaningful contribution to strengthening nature’s own methods for balancing the climate, tested over thousands of years. Planting miracle mangrove trees is more than a vision, it is a celebration for life on earth. Believing in a livable future is more than a dream, it is a commitment to our global village.
