Event Description

“Our land, our nature” is an international congress to discuss how to #DecolonizeConservation. The conservation industry’s bid to make 30% of the world “Protected Areas” and the claim that “Nature Based Solutions” will solve biodiversity loss and climate change are wrong. This alternative congress will expose these as colonial and false solutions to these crises, and as approaches that destroy the best guardians of the natural world: the Indigenous Peoples who safeguard 80% of biodiversity.
