Why you should join our Trees For Future campaign:
We are all connected together, humans and trees, and all life. We, you and me are connected by the air and the water Amazonia is gifting us. The rapid increase of deforestation under president Bolsonaro and the ongoing devastating fires are extremely concerning for our planet’s life support systems. We have to stop the war against nature. Trees play a most significant role in climate stabilisation. Not only in Amazonia but all over the world.
SERIOUS HARM TO EARTH IS PREVENTABLE
Stop Ecocide, change the law.
