We are a group of friends and experts that understand the fundamental importance of forest
resources and that cares about what is happening to the Amazon right now. The forests play a critical role in the livelihoods and wellbeing of everyone, and we are willing to organize a summit like this in a community that is engaged to protect the forest. We want to take the participant’s knowledge from their heads to the hands of the community and community’s knowledge from their heads to the hands of the participants.

 

We cooperate with an organization from São Paulo, cause it is a city that is already suffering its worst drought in at least 80 years, one of the causes of the crisis may be more than 2,000 kilometers away, in the growing deforested areas in the Amazon region. We want to bring people and organization from many parts of Brazil and world to also focus the attention to that.
