Amazonia 4.0, The Reset Begins
A short film showing that the Amazon is very close to the tipping point of the disappearance, but also that there are solutions and we need to look for a sustainable future for the Amazon
Amazon Forest/Global | 22 April 2021 – ongoing
Our short documentary film Amazonia 4.0, The Reset Begins, focuses on the research of Brazilian world-renowned climatologist Carlos Nobre on the risks of a “savanization” tipping point in the Amazon rainforest, driven by factors such as climate change, regional deforestation and forest fires.
In recent decades, political debates on the development of the Amazon rainforest have been dominated by two irreconcilable perspectives. On the one hand, there is a vision that values the conservation and defense of indigenous territories and lands of the Union. On the other, there is the developmental stimulus to use natural resources in favor of agriculture, energy and mining, causing accelerated cycles of degradation. The truth is, the solutions point that the region can accommodate both human beings and biodiversity.
This film, which is available to view online through YouTube, will, it is hoped, become a rally cry, bringing together new scientific and business visions for the future in order to release new and inclusive economic opportunities for the protection of ecosystems and communities across the Amazon Basin.
The Amazon Forest is probably the largest and most advanced laboratory on the planet. That’s why science and business need to go hand in hand to explore the paths of sustainable development, creating environmental and social impact while at the same time generating value for the future, including financial value for its local communities.
We hope that you’ll share our vision and that this short film will help reset a new era for sustainability. “Amazonia 4.0, The Reset Begins” has won 3 international film awards between since May 2021.
