The Green Helmets project is presented and its main pillars stand out: training, support for educational microprojects and reforestation.

Inspired by the United Nations Blue Helmets, the project begins with a pilot test in Andalusia, thanks to the collaboration of the regional government. It will later be scaled to other parts of Spain and the world.

CIFAL Málaga-UNITAR and Amazon have today launched the educational initiative Cascos Verdes – Green Helmets, aimed at teaching young Spaniards to develop and implement sustainability projects that contribute to the recovery and protection of nature. The project includes a virtual classroom, the selection and financing of ten microprojects in the Andalusia region over the next 12 months and the planting of 90,000 seedlings and seeds in the area affected by the forest fires in Sierra Bermeja, within the municipalities of Júzcar , Genalguacil, Estepona and Casares.

The Green Helmets is the first project that Amazon finances in Spain through Amazon's Right Now Climate Fund, the mechanism created by the company to conserve, restore and improve nature and biodiversity in the communities in which it operates. This first prototype program will be launched in close collaboration with the Junta de Andalucía.
