World Rainforest Movement

The World Rainforest Movement (WRM), based in Montevideo, Uruguay, is an international network of environmental organisations, social movements and NGOs that support small farmers and indigenous peoples. The WRM works worldwide to protect rainforests for the traditional forest dwellers who rely on them for their livelihood and to defend the rights of these groups in opposition to destructive projects.

Why we support the World Rainforest Movement (WRM)

The world’s last remaining rainforests, with their rich biodiversity, must be preserved as complex ecosystems. In this context, it is essential that they are protected from industrial logging. The WRM encourages major timber companies to move towards environmentally and socially responsible forestry-management approaches that involve local populations in the planning of forest uses and that refrain from clear-cutting and other harmful practices.

We have been supporting World Rainforest Movement since 2015.
