Imagining Collective Futures in the Amazon

September 15, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

Event Description

The extraction of natural resources in the Amazon only continues to increase, resulting in a record number of land-related conflicts, deforestation, and murders of environmental defenders, disproportionately affecting indigenous and peasant populations. At the same time, scientists continue to warn of the potential collapse of Amazon ecosystem, which would have catastrophic global impacts. What futures are in dispute in the Amazon? How can an interrelated, interdependent, and sustainable collective future for the rainforest and future generations of humans and non-humans emerge?
