Millions of women and girls among the world’s ever-growing refugee population, education remains an aspiration, not a reality.
Good examples abound, and many countries are making changes to help more girls from both refugee and local communities attend school. Our task is to make sure this happens everywhere, and to help create stronger communities that unite to find solutions to shared challenges.

Our Food, Our Future
There is a better system. Scientific progress means that positive change is possible. Ecological farming re-connects people with food through farmers, using science to enhance and sustain biodiversity and its healthier harvests. While industrial farming ignores the drastic consequences of climate change and adds to them, ecological farming works with a world in a state of flux, and always with the future in mind.
Today, progressive ecological techniques, together with individual daily choices empower us to farm, cook, eat and change the future of food, together.

Palm Oil Commitments Broken: Global Brands Linked to Massive Deforestation
Greenpeace released shocking footage of clear-cutting in Papua, Indonesia, illustrating just how pervasive the problem has become for consumer companies and palm oil traders. How much land was cleared? An area almost half the size of Paris.
The clearance is seen in PT Megakarya Jaya Raya (PT MJR), a palm oil concession controlled by the Hayel Saeed Anam Group (HSA), a multinational company that is headquartered in Yemen. The forest clearance we exposed includes an area that is zoned for protection by the Indonesian government as a result of the devastating fires of 2015.
Papua represents one of the last vestiges of virgin rainforest in the world. Within those forests there are over 600 species of exotics birds, the tree kangaroo, and many more species that have yet to be discovered. To sum it up: Papua is home to 50% of Indonesia’s unique wildlife and plant species.

We know, even by casual observation, that humanity has disrupted the balance of life on Earth, eradicated habitats, reduced biodiversity, and driven some species to extinction. Now, an updated Census of Earth’s Biomass reveals some details of this transformation of the species diversity on Earth.
