Unity

Unity is a space which aims to raise funds and engage awareness around global DEFORESTATION, centred around the Rainforests of the AMAZON. We believe in the power of artists to initiate CRITICAL conversations on climate and the HEALTH of our world, which cannot breathe without out trees and forests. Central to this conversation is the understanding that indigenous communities, which have called these rainforests home for millennia are the best defenders of their ancestral territories. 

PROTECT

To date, we have lost more than half of Earth’s original rainforests and climate researchers agree that, at our current rate of deforestation, we will lose them all to ecosystem collapse within our lifetimes.

Satellite imagery shows us that indigenous controlled rainforests have a much lower rate of deforestation, even lower than that of national parks. Yet these peoples have been marginalised and pushed out of their ancestral lands in the name of modernity and the myth of progress.

If that happens, it would not only affect the hundreds of millions of people in the region. It would also mean billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide will be emitted into the atmosphere as trees die and vegetation burns; less rainfall throughout central and South America; altered climate patterns globally, and the extinction of countless animal and plant species.

TOGETHER

Unity is a nonprofit which works in partnership with the Rainforest Foundation. We are supported by a small group of artists and thinkers :

Laurence Ellis
Michael Quinn
Made Thought
and
2020 Solidarity.

about

GROW

What began as an opportunity to contribute towards the short term threat of the pandemic, quickly grew into something which will establish meaningful, ongoing fundraising initiatives and dialogues. The threats to these forests are legion and without our collective support, the situation will get progressively worse. Unity is the only way forward, for all of us.

Unity has been created in partnership with the Rainforest Foundation. 30 years and 12 million hectares later, the Rainforest Foundation is the standard bearer for effective and respectful human rights-based environmental protection.
