SPECIAL ISSUE : ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION
Invited by a worldclass network of indigenous people and experts on restoration to create a link with the world’s youth leaders, schools and citizens to add their superpowers to rapidly restore Amazonian ecosystems together we are creating the world’s richest and actionable resource on AMAZONIA for use in education and SDGs as FREE resource for the world’s teachers, students, citizens and civil society to turn their love for this magnificent Living Planet into action with swift impact, highest value learning culture, rich experiences and opportunities for LIVING DREAMS.
THE SAD NEWS > The Problem
Science and IUCN’s 1,000s of members warn that 20% of Amaznia are deforested and that another 2% will lead to collapse of the entire ecosystem – and thereby the world water cycle’s heartpump – with beyond catastrophic consequences for all continents. Real bad.
Brazil’s current government pushes for total eradication of Indigenous People’s landrights, causing immediate multiple genocide and – destruction of Amazonia. Not cool.
World governments and companies are hardly able to make relevant moves for good. Media do not tell people about the gravity of the problem. You and Citizens have little power.
THE GOOD NEWS > The Solution
Global experts, civil society and Indigenous People are responding and have built trust that their goals are aligned on a foundation of shared priorities, mind- and heartset.
Since option 1) protest against villains to stop ecosystem destruction is not efficient enough
they now priorise teaming up for option 2) large-scale Ecosystem Restoration of enormous spaces of land left behind or left aside by dirty industries, forest fires and miners … powered by millions of indigenous hands engaged to save their land, lives, cultures and futures.
And here, you and citizens all over Earth have enormous powers – with us.
