Skoll Series: Saving the Amazon Through Community Enterprises with Conexsus
With the amount of carbon dioxide the Amazon rainforest absorbs, it’s often called ‘the lungs of the earth’. Its destruction will lead to a global increase in temperature, floods and droughts. And while climate change affects us all, this is even more immediately devastating for the communities that live in the forest.
By supporting the development of small enterprises in the Brazilian Amazon, Conexsus is solving environmental destruction and helping the livelihood of these communities. Today, Co-founder Carina Pimenta and Interim Executive Director Marco van der Ree reveal how Conexsus is using bioeconomy to help preserve our forests.
