We all live in the city, and we all deserve to live in Paradise. Urban Paradise is our objective. Our Guild of innovative, skilled and hard-working people will make it real. Our city was Paradise before it was paved. With enough dedicated effort we can transform it into Urban Paradise, where the human and natural worlds blend more harmoniously. When we make an investment by making small accommodations for nature, we gather a bounty of dividends that improve our quality of life. By adding native plants, we create new habitat and protect human infrastructure. Plants and trees clean our air. Mangroves calm and filter our water, shelter our coastlines, and as estuaries provide us with fish to eat.
UPG strives to ensure that urban areas are developed and maintained with the utmost consideration of natural habits and surrounding communities.
We nurse and plant endangered native species of plants and trees to sustain native habitats.
We teach and provide space for families who live in areas with few green spaces to grow food, to address the issue of food deserts.
We work closely with local government to promote and implement policies that enhance urban sustainability and protect the environment. Our focuses are on clean drinking water, air quality, pollinators and matters regarding Sea Level Rise.
We empower the voices of citizens who wish to be heard about their concerns over these issues in their neighborhoods.
