We won’t be able to fight climate change if
deforestation of the Brazilian rainforest continues. CO2
sink, global rain dispenser or biodiversity Hot- Spot: The
Rainforest is of existential importance for global climate.
In Brazil, there are huge territories that have been transformed
from live- pulsating rainforests into abandoned savannah. Such a
piece of land we want to buy and replant it with an agroforest. In
an agroforest, several kinds of plants and trees form a diverse
community. In other words: we’re going to plant a productive
forest. Trough our project we want to prove that
reforestation and agriculture doesn’t have to be seen as a
contrast. Agroforestry makes possible a sustainable form
of land-use and resolves the contradiction of environmental
protection and fruitful farmland. In Brazil, there already exists a
big agroforestry community, but influence of agro-business is
stopping it from developing big scale flagship projects.
