Raising the Roof: Voices for the Amazon, curated by Global Canopy
The survival of the Amazon rainforest is essential to the survival of the planet. It houses the greatest concentration of biodiversity on Earth and absorbs 5 percent of the world’s annual CO2 emissions. But deforestation in the Amazon is at its highest level in a decade. Indigenous peoples nurture 80 percent of the world's cultural and biological diversity; and for centuries have proved the best stewards of tropical forests. Join us for an evening of film, music, scientific talks and live performances that will amplify the voices of Indigenous peoples and the vital role they play in climate solutions.
