To transform the reality of the Amazon and the planet, the Sacred Headwaters Alliance proposes:
The Amazon is the victim of accelerated extraction of wood, oil, and other minerals. Poverty and inequality force the native population to collaborate with the destruction of their territory. That is why it is urgent to transform the region's economy and generate opportunities for its populace.
Fires and Disasters
Ecuador and Peru possess more than 12% of the Amazon. However, the duty to preserve the biodiversity of our Amazon portions and the conservation of its indigenous languages should mobilize the two countries in case of a fire or other situation of risk in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil.
The decline of prosperous and industrialized economies can relieve the Amazon by reducing the extraction of primary products. It is possible to succeed by reducing consumption, carbon emissions, and creating initiatives of redistributive justice for the entire population.
As a result of climate change and deforestation, the Amazon rainforest is approaching a point of no return; meaning that green alternatives must rely on reducing production and consumption, discarding GDP as an indicator of well-being, and focusing on the quality of life of the population.
80% of carbon dioxide emissions occur due to oil, coal, and gas. To avoid burning fuels, environmentalist Tzeporah Berman proposed a Treaty of Non-Proliferation of Fossil Fuel that would phase out fossil fuels and support: non-proliferation, global disarmament, and a just and peaceful transition.
Universal Basic Income
The UBI is a tax-financed income given to all residents of countries such as Alaska and the US without conditions or prerequisites. It has been shown beyond doubt that by not worrying about daily survival, the native population focuses on their progress and ventures into education and profitable ventures.
