    Lula da Silva held a meeting with the governor of Pará, Helder Barbalho, after which he tweeted: "We look forward to hosting the world's largest climate event in a city that is part of the Brazilian Amazon."

    The governor said that the city of Belém is open to debate about the Amazon, "discuss the climate in the world and find solutions."

    During COP27 in Egypt (November 6-18, 2022), the Brazilian President expressed his willingness to host the climate summit.  

    Another gift for the people of Pará, the president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in a meeting with governor Helder Barbalho, announced the choice of Belém to host the COP30, in 2025. One more conquest for the people of Pará. Congratulations, governor Helder Barbalho.

    The ultra-right-wing Jair Bolsonaro withdrew Brazil's candidacy to host COP25 in 2019 during the government transition in 2018. 

    According to environmental organizations, deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon increased by 60 percent during Bolsonaro's government (2019-2022).

    Lula da Silva advocates for his presidency until 2027 a new era in Brazil's relationship with the planet's health. During his inauguration speech on January 1, the leader of the Workers' Party (PT) said he will not tolerate the destruction of the Amazon.
