Explain your idea in details:
The world's largest rainforest is being drastically destroyed, only in 2018, more than one billion Amazon trees have been deforested, this was the largest deforestation in the last 10 years (Data: Greenpeace). The application of Brazilian forestry laws is still weak, so my idea is to create a social mobilization through a petition so that the Brazilian government is pressured to increase the inspection of deforestation, increase the fine and punishment of environmental crimes and carry out national programs for the awareness of the population. Observation: the link to the petition is in the comments. As a way to try to soften environmental impacts, I created a blog to raise awareness and inform citizens about the importance of environmental preservation, especially of the Amazon rainforest.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The main objective of the undersigned proposal is to increase the inspection of deforestation in the Amazon forest, responsible for the planet's climate balance. Already the proposal of the blog is intended to encourage the concern of people with nature, through posts and news about the environment.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Creation of government policies that propose the reduction of deforestation and avoid the reduction of biodiversity.
