COP 27: Youth voices in defense of the Amazon

From the Amazon rainforest to the desert, the 18-year-old indigenous woman Tainara Kambeba traveled four hours by boat and 2 and a half days including flights and stopovers to bring her experience and ideas about the environment from her home near Manaus (AM) to Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. Likewise, many young people took up the spaces and were protagonists in the discussions at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change, COP 27, held until November 18. COP 27 annually brings together representatives from several countries to seek solutions and sign agreements to overcome environmental problems. This year, young people were highlighted with unprecedented opportunities: they had a pavilion of their own, an even bigger one than the pavilions of many national delegations at the event.
