The Brazilian rainforest has been likened to the lungs of the world – so whatever happens in Brazil affects the whole planet. That is why it is so important to support civil society groups and local authorities in their work to mitigate climate change
Vitae Civilis works with NGOs and other partners to strengthen and broaden the capacity of their work on action-oriented initiatives to combat climate change. This project aims to help broaden the outreach of this work towards a ‘critical mass’ of awareness. This will enable Brazilian people to demand stronger governmental policy for mitigation and adaption to climate change. Vitae Civilis is currently finishing a position paper for national policy on climate change and is also building awareness through a brochure in eight colloquial languages to be used as an educational tool.
