Collective Action for the Amazon

Briefing on a Collaborative Community

ABOUT

Collective Action for the Amazon is a collaboration between Latin American philanthropists of the “next’ and "now" generations. We advocate for the implementation of a ‘standing forest economy’ in the region; an approach that considers the potential of integrating the environment into the economy, rather than viewing the environment as an economic hindrance. Through this approach, we showcase our commitment to conserving and restoring the Amazon Rainforest while improving the lives of local communities.

The community has partnered with Conexsus, an organization working to empower and promote community enterprises based on biodiversity and sustainable agriculture. The work with Conexsus will be based in Xingu Indigenous Reserve (Território Indígena Xingu or TIX), a protected area that hosts 16 different indigenous peoples in more than 2.8 million hectares. Through Conexsus, members will be supporting the first phase of a long-desired project involving local governments, agriculture, and the communities.

As this project unfolds, the group will be continuously learning about the unique aspects of investing in this cause. In addition to the learnings acquired through their direct investment in the project and close contact with Conexsus, Synergos also has designed tailored discussions between the group and noteworthy changemakers, who will share their own learnings and experience in defending the Amazon.
