- ABOUT NPO birth
Urban parks have diversified their roles in society with the times, serving as a place of rest and relaxation for people of all ages, an urban habitat for preserving biodiversity, a playground and outdoor learning center for children, an evacuation shelter in times of disaster and in many other capacities. At the same time, numerous businesses and projects have been launched inside urban parks, which has been enhancing the connection between individuals and their community. More so than ever before, parks function as a “nucleus of urban development” by getting all kinds of people involved with one another, and are growing as a driving force behind restructuring efforts of local communities.
What should the functions of urban parks be? What hardware or software is required? NPO birth, in its quest to build a better relationship between people and nature, has steadily refined the “power of parks” as the quality much needed of today’s parks.
Our mission and commitment is to work together with each individual in order to perfect the power of parks and bring a fresh breath of life to urban areas.
With over twenty years of experience and extensive knowledge in ecology and community building,
we introduce and advance the power of parks in urban areas.
Working hand in hand with other sectors, NPO birth connects people and people as well as people and nature.
As such, we encourage lifestyle changes, creating a society where people and nature can live in harmony.
What we do

NPO birth uses its collective strengths in three fields of expertise to hone the “power of parks” and propose exciting lifestyles that embrace the natural environment in cities.
