Should we decrease meat consumption?

To rethink the way we consume food is to act directly against the destruction of the Amazon and global warming. The problem of deforestation, of course, has been aggravated by violating public policy. However, what are the ways to get involved and rethink our habits and its effects on the planet?

Pasture creation is estimated to be the main objective in deforesting the forest, followed by the use of land for monoculture. In addition to the destruction of trees, there is also the water problem, since in Brazil, around 17 thousand liters of water are used to produce a kilo of meat. The purpose of this class is to better explain how this whole structure works and, in a pedagogical way, to build paths for conscious consumption that is less harmful to the planet.

8 pm 鈥 Banda Ala铆deneg茫o 鈥 Manaus

Formed at the 2008 carnival, Ala铆deneg茫o (AM) mixes rhythms, passing through the tunes of Boi Bumb谩, Cirandas, the Amazonian accent of the beirad茫o, Guitarrada and Carimb贸, which flirts with Coco, Maracatu, Cumbia Colombiana, besides Bossa Nova and Rock.

With this work of musical syncretism that accompanies it since the beginning, the band makes a sound with dancing melodies that reverberate in the public. The lyrics depict the caboclo鈥檚 look, popular festivals, food, black and white water beaches in the exuberant Amazon, rivers and local nightlife; seasoning that is the secret of a song that puts everyone to reflect and dance.
