The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent, non-profit organization that establishes standards for the harvesting of forest resources. The standards work to minimize damage to ecosystems, empower indigenous communities, and protect worker's rights while still meeting the world economy's demand for forest resources.




Transcription:
This village is unique for its beautiful karsts, friendly folks, and orangutans.

The life of Dayak people is very much attached with forest. They hunt for food and get building and home ware materials from the forest.

Merabu village wants to have its own protected forest.

Narrator: But you don't have a voice in decisions being made about these forests.

neighboring villages have lost their forest. now it's hard for them to find wood for fire.

Now, imagine you are part of a team. A team with tools and connections that empower you to make decisions and take action to sustain your forests and your future.

TNC supports us with a lot of things. Together with TNC, we're trying to get legal approval from the government for the protected forest.

TNC provide us with important knowledge on how to manage FSC and save the animals.

In communities, industries and governments across Indonesia and Papua New Guinea ... across rainforests throughout Asia and the Pacific ... Imagine these stories replicated a thousand times over ... That's what WE'RE imagining.

Our main purpose with FSC is to be able to sell the product that came from reliable and sustainable source.

here we still can easily spot wildlife animals like deer, bears, orangutans and hornbills.

I love nature. I want to preserve the nature.

I hope by keeping our forest we can support the life and future of the next generation.

Imagine you are part of these stories. You can be. Join us!
