About this charity

We’re Cool Earth. We exist to champion the relationship between people, rainforest and climate.

We raise and give cash directly, and partner with indigenous people and local communities on projects that tackle the root causes of deforestation.

Right now the world is in a climate crisis. People have lived in balance with forest for thousands of years. The real rainforest experts, now face extreme injustice whilst living on the front line of the climate crisis.

The most effective way to fight back is to protect the best carbon-storing technology that already exists: rainforest.

And the best way to do that? Back, support and listen to the people living there with Cool Earth.
