Ana Lima approached Meike Ziegler to partner with Creatuals and have the Table of Hope in the Cerrado as a symbolic and powerful mean to include the voices and hopes of the local communities and producers in the dialogues that discuss the future of the biome. Particularly those from Matopiba, the most vulnerable region.

LAB is the key consulting company to host and coordinate five different multi-stakeholder platforms in the Cerrado biome in Brazil to halt deforestation and conversion of native vegetation by co-creating inter sectoral agreements and strategies: CFA (Collaboration for Forests and Agriculture) championed by WWF, TNC and NWF, Coalisão Cerrado (local and national NGOs), Cerrado das Águas (Coffee Growers, IUCN, Imaflora, Government) and GTC – Grupo de Trabalho do Cerrado (Soy Traders, Retailers, WWF, TNC, CI,Ministries of Environment and Agriculture).
