If you enjoy the outdoors consider working as an environmental volunteer in Rio de Janeiro. You can choose whether you want to help preserving the urban forest, or to grow vegetables at an biological community garden in one of Rio’s favelas.

From conservation projects to urban renewal, IKPVA has partnerships with a number of NGOs and projects. They are helping to protect Rio’s stunning landscape. Then, they are growing vegetables and salads in community gardens to alleviate hunger or donate to local crèches.

Volunteering on Reforestation in Brazil

You can volunteer with the reforestation project at the Tijuca National Forest, the world’s largest urban forest. While you are volunteering on this ecological project, you will be helping in the tree nursery. But there is more, what you can do:

  • counting species of tropical trees and typical plants
  • opening and cleaning hiking trails in the forest
  • cutting branches
  • painting fences and signals,

among other activities.
