Avaaz – Olympic Committee: Stop Ancient Forest Destruction

We have a choice to make: Preserve a 500 year old ancient forest, home to four threatened species, or Clearcut the ancient forest for an Olympic ski competition.

It seems like a no-brainer. And it should be.

But right now, Olympic organisers in South Korea are tearing down a forest, with trees half a millennia old, to make room for new ski facilities. It’s shortsighted, illogical and worst of all, irreversible. Once the precious forest is gone, it’s gone forever.

But we can stop them from clearcutting for an Olympic sized resort.

The International Olympic Committee laid down a mandate that this event should be a “Green Olympics” built and operated by principles of sustainability.

If we launch an enormous global outcry from every country participating in the Winter Olympics, we can shame the International Olympic Committee to live up to their ideals.

Join this urgent campaign and Avaaz will deliver our voices directly to the Olympic Committee offices.
