After experiencing the impacts of deforestation in the Bazilian rainforest first hand, Felipe Villela was compelled to act. The result was Agroforesty; a re-Nature solution where nature and business collaborate. Felipe Villela is Co-Founder of reNature, a foundation with the goal of restoring 1.000.000 ha of degraded land worldwide through regenerative agroforestry. He sees himself as a leader within the agricultural sustainability movement, by connecting people and including them in multiple projects. His positive spirit drives him to reach his own goals and to persuade others to believe in themselves, their capability to facility change and be a part of a worldwide movement. Together with local farmers, communities, government authorities, companies & organisations, reNature exchanges knowledge to design and implement an economically viable model farm. Felipe’s credo is: only action leads to change. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
