Missão Onda Verde

Our Mission

Integration with the environment and preservation of life.

Our History

On January 25, 1994, Onda Verde was created by a collective of young environmentalists who sought to build a fairer, more supportive and sustainable world.

We continue struggling for the implementation of public policies that can contribute to the environment and improve the quality of life of the population of Baixada Fluminense, Rio de Janeiro.
