This Open Zone is brought to you by our Community friend Xavier from Ecuador. As you may know, Ecuador is home to some of the last remaining intact rain forests of the world. The Yasuní rain forest is now in danger. An enormous oil field was discovered underneath, leaving the government of Ecuador in a dilemma. On one hand, not to extract oil and let Ecuador profit from the wealth would be foolish. On the other, Yasuní’s wealth is equally important to the Ecuadorians, and the rest of the world!
Xavier needs ideas how to convince his government to keep believing in Yasuní and to postpone oil extraction until a solution os found. Sign up here to join, if you’re not already a jovoto member!
