In this Jan. 6, 2020 photo, activist Ale Roque smiles as she sees a tree bearing fruit at her home in Rio's first favela, Morro da Providencia, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Roque's project forms part of a recent wave of green projects in Rio, a city known for its jungle, but much of which is actually large expanses of concrete and brick with ever-hotter temperatures during the summer months.
