¿What is Premios Verdes?
Latin America, our mutual land, has 23% of tropical forests, 31% of water resources and 70% of the biodiversity on the planet. However, it is the region with the highest urban growth, 80% of the population lives in cities, causing stress over the environment and thus, facing overpopulation, deforestation, biodiversity loss and water contamination. Many scientists are constantly reminding us nature is agonizing, that we are drowning the seas, deforesting lands and eliminating species. Many specialists have alerted us that we must act immediately, that we don't have enough time, we must come closer, change our lifestyle, and transform people. We must make an impact on people to generate opportunities that will make changes in the community's lifestyle.
