ACT was established in 2009 for the sole purpose of developing, designing, constructing and delivering an innovative, replicable ‘blueprint’ project in the Brazilian Amazon that creates a sustainable business model for a local population enabling the community to continue to act as guardians of the rainforest.
ACT strives to protect and conserve large areas of the pristine Amazoni rainforest, focussing on areas such as climate change and biodiversity. ACT is motivated by the philosophy that endangered ecosystems of the world will only be successfully conserved with the participation and development of local communities.
"Great projects are built by teams of risk-takers. Apart from the input from the local population, this project owes its life to an inspirational team of young – mainly Brazilian and British – talented phDs. They saw the vision…and expanded the horizon"
