Indigenous Resistance and the Crisis of Mother Earth: Paths to Climate Justice Day 1

April 22 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm EDT

Around the world, indigenous communities and movements are revitalizing indigenous knowledge and ways of organizing to defend lands, restore communal self-determination, and protect Mother Earth as they confront (neo)colonial, patriarchal, capitalist and state projects that undermine indigenous territories and drive Anthropocene crises like climate change and biodiversity loss.

Two panels will be held; the first on April 22nd and the second on April 23rd.

In solidarity with indigenous struggles, this Earth Week panel seeks to foster critical reflections on the responsibility of academia and the public in relation to the communities and movements working to overcome the drivers of our planetary crisis. This event will be held in parallel to the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.

The event will be moderated by Milano School of Policy, Management and Environrment Professor Leonardo Figueroa Helland and will feature indigenous environmental activists from Mesoamerican, North American and South American communities in conversation with each other and the audience.

Presented by Amazon Watch, the Shipibo Conibo Center and The New School’s Tishman Environment and Design Center
