Only 10% of the world’s indigenous lands are recognized by national governments. Despite this, indigenous and local communities continue to preserve the environment. Today, on Indigenous People’s Day, we unite to celebrate them. Join us! Post your picture with a thank you note using #GuardiansoftheForest.
Photos posted with the #GuardiansoftheForest between August 9th and September 10th will be projected in New York city during Climate Week, when heads of state will gather to discuss solutions to the climate crisis. Join thousands of people from around the world who also believe that Indigenous Peoples and local communities must have their lives, rights and territories protected and respected.
