Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, sensitive to questions and concerns relating to the environment, met the Amazonian Cacique Raoni, the guest of honour at the 5th edition of Bordeaux’s Climax Festival at the Darwin, in which the theme this year was “the Amazon rainforest or the uprooting of the world”. They exchanged views on such subjects as sustainability, agroforestry, the protection of ancestral cultures and the defence of populations. The encounter and the warm, informal discussion were introduced by Philippe Barre, the founder of the Climax festival, which was dedicated this year to the topic of deforestation and the defence of indigenous peoples.
