Live-stream/zoom webinar in English, 16:30 UTC/17:30 CET

Este evento fue transmitido en vivo durante el evento del COP26 Coalition «Desde la Tierra: Encuentro Global por la Justicia Climática«.

Sobre el evento:

Las comunidades forestales de todo el mundo están en la primera línea de la protección y conservación de nuestros bosques y de la lucha contra los impactos de los monocultivos de árboles, la quema de árboles en las centrales eléctricas para la bioenergía, la promoción de «soluciones basadas en la naturaleza» por parte de los grandes contaminadores y otras falsas soluciones.

Please join Biofuelwatch and Global Forest Coalition for this session linking struggles and campaigns from groups around the world to protect forests, wildlife, communities and the climate from bioenergy and monoculture tree plantations.

Speakers from Brazil, India, the UK and the Southern USA will discuss the impacts of industrial tree plantations, forest destruction for tree burning in power stations and the threats posed by the inclusion of ‘nature based solutions’ in UN and COP26 processes.

We will hear about the environmental injustices of wood pellet production and industrial tree plantations and learn about grassroots and community-led efforts around the world to conserve and protect forests and biodiversity. We will also discuss how community groups in different countries are implementing gender-responsive and rights-based approaches as alternatives to plantations and tree burning and how these approaches can help achieve climate, social and environmental justice.

We’ll have time for discussion and a Q & A with the speakers. Everyone is welcome!
