Our Response to the Climate Emergency
February 1-10, 2020
Marina's life story is immensely inspiring. She shares with us the precious wisdom that she harvested on her journey from living in and with the Amazon forest, moving to a monastery in the city, defending the trees with her own body as an activist, and having a huge positive impact through her role as minister of the environment. Marina tells us how we can support the Amazon forest right now and reminds us that, even if there is fear and doubt, it is crucial to remain committed to the right actions and be persistent, like Life is.
