Stop Killer Robots
CIPÓ is a member of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, which aims to prohibit the development and use of lethal autonomous weapons, capable of selecting and engaging targets without human supervision.

Young Politicians for the Climate
CIPÓ endorses the initiative ‘Young Politicians for the Climate’, a non-partisan climate manifesto, collectively developed by young leaders and experts engaged with the climate agenda. The manifesto proposes a reflection and a call for action in light of the unsustainable development models adopted by cities across Brazil over the last decades. The initiative also seeks to reinforce youth commitment to the development of public policies aimed at making Brazilian municipalities more resilient, fair and equal.
CIPÓ is a member of the Chagas do Garimpo campaign, which aims to build a collective effort against illegal mining. The campaign works to build political momentum to develop mechanisms to protect traditional communities, as well as encourage activities aimed at both protecting the Amazon biome and ensuring the well-being of local populations. Through the campaign, CIPÓ seeks to help increase opposition against mining in indigenous lands, demonstrating how harmful the activity can be for the health, safety and social equality of local populations.
