At the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change: COP26, Rainforest Partnership - founder of World Rainforest Day - along with XPRIZE Rainforest, The International Ecotourism Society, Yunity, and other aligned organizations, will launch a bold, global collaboration for urgent, sweeping forest protection: Rainforest Collective.
This collective of forest-focused and forest-supporting organizations will map our expertise, projects, and resources to build pathways for collaboration across models, places, and sectors. It will enable us to convene as a powerful, global voice to influence decision-making and policy at the corporate and government levels, while maintaining individual organizational sovereignty, values, and missions of all member organizations.
To help empower this vision, Rainforest Collective is launch partner to Rainforest DAO, a project developed by Yunity Labs, as the first global decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) for rainforest conservation. In an inventive use of decentralized technologies and distributed financial systems, it will engage philanthropic donors, institutional communities and investors, while creating financial incentives for the entire ecosystem. Rainforest DAO will level the playing field among participating partners, restore the value of our forests, uplift and support rainforest communities, and reward the highest-impact solutions.
This targeted, innovative approach will drive massive impact for forests on an unprecedented scale, matching the urgency of the climate crisis and harnessing the power of SDG17 - global partnerships for sustainable development.
More information coming soon. Follow the action at COP26 through our Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
