We are a collective of human beings, inspired by the natural world and motivated to promote a symbiotic relationship with nature.
How it all began
Breathe Portugal was founded by João in 2017 after he came back from a life-changing experience in Brazil’s wild rainforests.
As he was struggling with severe anxiety, he experienced the therapeutic effects of the contact with nature at first hand.
When he came back to Portugal, he felt the urge not only to obtain a scientific understanding of what he had experienced but also to explore his own country’s natural heritage and breathtaking green spaces.
Inspired by all the new information and insights he got in that process, he created Breathe Portugal upon the hope of promoting a transformation of the way people perceive and relate to nature.
