Why are rainforests key to the health of our world? And what do we need to do to save what’s left?
Tony Juniper is Britain’s best-known environmental campaigner. He has published several successful and award-winning books including the Sunday Times bestseller What Has Nature Ever Done for Us? and Saving Planet Earth. He has worked on efforts to conserve tropical forests for more than thirty years. In researching his latest book, Rainforest: Dispatches from Earth’s most vital frontlines, Tony travelled to Cool Earth’s Asháninka partnership in the Peruvian Amazon to see first hand how Cool Earth’s partnerships work.
Rainforest is a personal story, drawing on Tony’s many years’ experience at the frontline of the fight to safeguard these ecological wonders, at the heart of our water and air cycles and vital stores of carbon. With over half destroyed, we need to urgently act to protect what is left and raise awareness of the issue. Rainforest explains why, and how, citing Cool Earth as a leading example of how community conservation is effectively preventing deforestation.
For this one-off multimedia event, Tony will be in conversation with Matthew Owen, Director of Cool Earth. Join us on 22nd February in Falmouth, Cornwall to listen to his tales of travel and just why we all need rainforest in our daily lives. Ticket price: £16 including a copy of Tony’s inspirational book or a special ticket-only price of £5 for Cool Earth donors.
