Indigenous peoples have been protecting the Amazon, our world’s largest rainforest, for thousands of years. Today, in the face of our climate crisis, biodiversity loss and a global pandemic, we celebrate the forests which give life to our world. It is thanks to indigenous peoples that our world’s last wild forests are still standing.

In these uncertain times, we stand strong with our indigenous partners in their struggle to continue defending the Amazon against all odds: their knowledge and wisdom is essential in paving a path forward towards a balanced planet and to restore harmony with the natural world. They know that our future is irreconcilably intertwined with the fate of the Amazon.
