Our mission is to be a game-changing actor driving innovative sustainable development solutions.

We turn costs into opportunities, forge ground-breaking partnerships, and connect public and private sectors to overcome complex challenges.

We offer support in areas such as sustainable development, climate change, migration and participation in inclusive societies.

We train and empower people and public authorities, give visibility through human-centered campaigns and provide tools for effective resources management.

Our multidisciplinary approach and expertise combines strategic advisory, technical capacities and knowledge, market opportunities and social inclusion. Our business model is inclusive, equitable and profitable. Through the 6 interconnected pillars of the NODE we deliver a unique and powerful support. We focus on people and inspire change.

Market Services & Certifications
We assist you with business development, product promotion and internationalisation processes. We help you in accessing funding opportunities, facilitating a PEFC national forestry certification system and other kinds of local environmental and social certifications, networking, and finding valuable partners in order to achieve your objectives.
Knowledge & Trainings
Knowledge should be accessible, usable and equitable. The knowledge cycle is a living process generated both at local and universal level. We embrace and process knowledge, and channel it into the ecosystem again for the benefit of individuals, societies and policy makers. We provide effective knowledge management solutions calibrated to specific contexts and needs. We deliver capacity building training, personalised coaching and build solutions through an effective mix of human techniques and IT tools.
Policy Analysis & Strategic Advisory
Whether it’s gathering intelligence, identifying problems, assessing the consequences or selecting the right solution, we are here to help you. We support you with analysis and evaluation for policy formulation at a local, national and international level. We provide you with science-based evidence and key thematic expertise to support legislative improvements and modernisation. We keep abreast of the latest technological developments and political dynamics that can impact on your policy design to offer an integrated and strategic advisory service.
Research and Technology Support
We cooperate with leading research centres, universities, technology parks, incubators and the private sector. We facilitate research and technology development through a comprehensive set of services and building upon the great expertise of our partners and network. From state of the art satellite imagery and data analysis, to environmental modelling and management, mobile applications, access to knowledge and open source solutions, we provide the support you need.
Social Awareness & Outreach
It’s about making the right choice. No matter if it is about environmental, economic or social risks we face, or the opportunities we can seize and the benefits we can harvest. Social awareness and outreach play a fundamental role. We raise awareness, inform people about new discoveries and ideas, promote best practices, and foster debate. We finely adapt content to the most effective channels for the greatest impact. We create empathy and connect to audiences. We give messages an emotional mark so to stay vivid and last long in people’s conscience. We tell human stories that can inspire leaders, opinion makers and society at large.
Social Inclusion & Empowerment
We provide support to progressive policy-making, social inclusion programming and offer training in the forestry and environmental sector, including mobility schemes and professional exchanges (north-south and south-south). We train marginalised and unemployed people, especially youth and women, to reacquire self-confidence, while creating a sense of identity and belonging to a community. We use a comprehensive and cooperative methodology to foster social inclusion and cultural dialogue. We provide people with valuable technical skills to favour their economic independence and a serene reinsertion to society. We raise awareness among communities and policy makers on the social, economic and political benefits of better integrating marginalised people, refugees and migrants through social work for the benefit of all.
