Indigenous Resistance and the Crisis of Mother Earth: Paths to Climate Justice – Day 2

April 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 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.

This second panel seeks to foster critical reflection on the responsibility of academia in relation to the front-line communities and movements directly confronting the drivers and agents of our planetary crisis.

These conversations will be held during Earth Week and parallel to the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.

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