From daily practices to policies subject to impact millions of lives, the climate emergency summons us to make difficult decisions, however which enable to lead the world towards its regeneration.

Instituto Escolhas develops and shares studies and analyses on fundamental sustainable development themes, bringing innovative approaches to the main socio-environmental challenges by building solutions based on data and evidence in conformity with the rigor of the scientific method.

We believe that the best decisions are made when the society knows which are the key- problems of each sector, understands the stages required to resolve them and realizes the cost to transform ideas into practice.
