The Rainforest Alliance World Cup
Posted on June 5, 2014 by Rainforest Alliance
With just a week until the World Cup begins, the world’s interest in all things Brazilian has reached a fever pitch. Here at the Rainforest Alliance, we’re dedicating our coverage to the love of the game, with our own little twist.
Throughout the tournament, we’ll take a look at the countries in each group—and what they bring to the game in terms of agriculture, forestry, tourism, environment and biodiversity—through the eyes of our little green frog. Watch this space for match analyses, a dedicated Rainforest Alliance head-to-head challenge, an environmental league table, and plenty of stories about our work to protect the diverse communities and precious ecosystems of host nation and World Cup giant, Brazil.
The official slogan of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brasil is All in One Rhythm—a theme we couldn’t love more in light of our recent I’m Alive Brasil music film, conceived of and led by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Andres Levin of Content-OS, who directed and produced the film alongside Paula Lavigne and Fernando Young. “I’m Alive” features world-renowned Brazilian recording artists Caetano Veloso and Lenine, Criolo, Emicida Pretinho da Serrinha, along with many other celebrated Brazilian musicians who came together in Rio de Janeiro’s Floresta da Tijuca to create this unique experience in music, environmental awareness and cinema. Watch here and be inspired by the beautiful spirit of Brazil.
And make sure to check out Monday’s Frog Blog, where we’ll be presenting the countries in Groups A and B.

Because of this, manager Carlos Queiroz managed to persuade the Iranian football federation to bring forward the end of the domestic season to April in order to prepare for the tournament: here.
Nigeria can complete an international competition double when they head to Brazil as they aim to add the World Cup to their African Nations triumph last year. After stuttering in the early stages of qualification they eased past Ethiopia to book their place at the finals but many consider the Super Eagles as rank outsiders to become the first African nation to lift the trophy: here.
