Event Details

How are Amazonian Indigenous Peoples organising to confront threats to their collective rights and the dispossession of their territories, such as logging, agribusiness, extractive industries, infrastructure megaprojects and conservation via dispossession linked to carbon offsetting projects? What are their proposals for strengthening the self-government of their territories, protecting the climate and ensuring the good life for all the peoples of the Amazon?
Join this session with Indigenous leaders from the Kichwa, Nɨpodɨmakɨ-Uitoto and Awajun peoples to explore their struggles in defence of their territories and forests and to build Indigenous self-government.
