Help Lead the Fight Against Deforestation

Target: Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany

Goal: Unite against deforestation and invest in clean energy.

In the fight against deforestation, one nation seems to be fighting alone. Norway has donated 366 million dollars each year to ending deforestation in South America’s rainforests. However, data shows that little progress has been made. Progress is stagnant because Norway fights deforestation alone.

Other wealthy European nations have vowed to fight against deforestation, but no other countries have joined Norway’s side, or donated as much as Norway has. Norway’s monetary contributions make up roughly 40 percent of the funds against deforestation. The United Kingdom and Germany both promised to help Norway, but little visible progress has been seen.

Sign the petition to demand that Germany, a leading country in the European Union, take its place alongside Norway and fight deforestation. As we have so often seen in the European Union, when Germany takes a step toward progress, other countries follow.


Dear Chancellor Merkel,

In the last ten years, Norway has given 40 percent of the funds in the fight against deforestation. However, despite the billions of dollars spent, little progress has been made. Norway can’t win this fight alone. Other countries must take its side.

Several years ago, Germany promised to help Norway in the fight against deforestation. I ask that you hold true to that promise. Fight deforestation. Other countries will undoubtedly follow your lead.

  2. Chancellor Merkel, Please keep the promise you made. We’re depending on you. Set an example by taking a strong stand against deforestation. I believe that you’ll inspire other countries to follow your lead.

  3. Since the 60’s we know that deforestation causes severe weather conditions – are the ones we experience world-wide not enough?
    When will we see a politician with brains and courage to speak out against corporations?

    JUST DO IT !!

  6. Trees are the lungs of this planet and short-sighted people are ruining it’s plants and animals at an alarming rate. The rainforest is home to more than half of the species on this planet and we need to share this world with them and stop destroying it. We belong to the earth, the earth does not belong to us.
