There is a natural solution to the climate breakdown: protecting forests. Climate activist Greta Thunberg and writer/climate activist George Monbiot explain.
The film’s production costs were covered with sponsorship from Conservation International, The Food and Land Use Coalition, and a donation from Gower Street. Musician and performance artist Rone donated use of his track, Motion, to the film. Read the press release.
We need nature
Want to fight climate change? Protect nature.
From mangroves to rainforests, grasslands to coral reefs, nature is a tool we can use to help reverse the climate breakdown.
What should we do?
Where nature is doing something vital – like sequestering carbon or shielding against storm surges – we must protect it.
Nature can regenerate itself, if we give it the opportunity. Give it space, but lend a hand where we can.
Prioritize the funding of projects that restore nature, not ones that destroy it.

There's a magic machine that sucks carbon dioxide out of the air, costs very little, and builds itself: a tree
We spend 1,000 times more on fossil fuel subsidies than we do on nature-based solutions to climate change
Nature-based solutions receive only 2% of funding to tackle the climate breakdown
