As the result of a powerful collaboration between @rewild, @Coldplay and @glblctzn, governors from three of Brazil’s Amazonia states (Para, Amapa and Amazonas) are committing to critical conservation and climate goals for one of our planet’s irreplaceable places: the Amazon rainforest.
The commitments vary and include moving away from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source, creating new protected areas and strengthening the management of established protected areas, and supporting Indigenous communities. Formally announced today at #GlobalCitizenLive, these actions will not only benefit Amazonia, but all life on Earth.
Congrats and thank you to @waldezgoesoficial, @wilsonlimaam and @helderbarbalho for their commitment to protecting and restoring our planet, and to Pará’s State Secretary for Environment and Sustainability José Mauro de Lima Ode Almeida for representing Amazonia at today’s Global Citizen event.
