We are The Tide
Marea Verde is a non-for profit organization established in 2017, committed to promote civic action and awareness on how to mitigate solid waste pollution in Panama’s rivers and coasts.
We develop cleaning pilot initiatives on the Matías Hernández River watershed,
We make environmental education workshops with the Aulas Verdes program, and
We implement awareness campaigns as well as sustainable alternatives for trash disposal.
Promote a new generation of responsible citizens
Sensitize about national environmental challenges
Innovate in the fields of conservation, maintenance and cleaning of rivers and mangroves, as well as in the transformation of recyclable waste
Strengthen alliances with civic groups and public and private institutions, in order to promote actions for change.
Generate and provide information for decision-making through pilot projects that can also serve as models to be replicated in the future.
Promote the recycling culture and environmental responsibility
Influence the creation and application of related norms and legislation
"This organization arises
as a concern from the citizens of a community
in which, despite the cleaning campaigns carried out
each year, they continued seeing a lot of garbage
and a problem that
was not resolved."
"Teaching how to value the environment, is teaching how to value life."
Create pilot projects that inspire civic action to reduce garbage pollution in Panamá.
Support biodiversity conservation and healthy environment by addressing pollution in rivers, coasts and oceans.
We also count with the valuable collaboration of the members of our board of directors.
