As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of people have lost their jobs and livelihoods which increase pressure from wildlife poaching, illegal mining and logging. In Costa Rica, more than 100.000 people are unemployed due to this unprecedented crisis. Costa Rica’s sustainable model is being threatened with debates that even consider oil and mining extraction as potential revenue and employment.
Today more than ever, we must seek opportunities that provide immediate economic relief while simultaneously contributing to build back a better and greener future with nature. In this context, #Footprints4ourFuture will enhance ecosystem restoration of 400,000 Ha by creating green jobs for nurturing, planting and maintaining at least 200,000 trees through an initial crowdfunding call for action.
Help us support a greener resilience and nature-based response, inherit future generations and our Planet with the most invaluable asset through #Footprints4ourFuture!
