Sinchi – Join the Treesistance (Afternoon Session)

Treesistance is a movement and an impact blueprint centered on the protection of the Amazon and other forests around the world. Working at the intersection where Indigenous knowledge and science meet.  We create disruptive models that have a tangible impact. Our mission is to revolutionize how the world looks at forest crime prevention and handles environmental preservation.

To effectively combat the climate crisis and deforestation, we need big picture thinking! Our impact blueprint and 4 pillars are;

  • Access to Justice – Indigenous Forest Forces using GPS technology to protect the rainforest. Our flagship and central component towards Forest Crime Prevention.
  • Digital Equity –  Internet & Communications are essential for health, education and forest crime prevention.
  • Renewable Energy Transition – Stopping the reliance on fossil fuels, cycle of poverty and exploitation.
  • Sustainable Economic Development – Ensuring the Forest is worth more standing than cut down.

By the end of 2023, Sinchi will be operating 9 teams of Indigenous Forest Guardians, that protect over 1500km2 of primary rainforest. This ‘Access to Justice’ model was featured in the last UN report on Forest & Fauna as a best practice approach to stopping Forest Crime.

In this special session, IR Global founder Tom Wheeler will talk about IR’s non-profit work in the Amazon, how the fate of the world’s largest rainforest affects us all and how by working together, we can leave a healthier world for future generations.

This 45min session will include a 12min short film introducing the Indigenous partners in Brazil, a 20minute presentation and Q&A.

Each participant will also be placed into a draw for a special gift (From the Amazon) that will be presented at the Annual conference in September.
