Uprooting the Drivers of Deforestation & Climate Change: frontline Visions and Pathways to a Transformative World
Biofuelwatch, Colectivo VientoSur, FASE and Global Forest Coalition are hosting an online panel discussion with activists from frontline communities that will first discuss and challenge some of the false solutions being proposed and promoted at COP26. The discussion will address why these false solutions make the climate crisis worse, and it will highlight the injustices that frontline communities are facing as a consequence of extractive industries, patriarchy, colonialism and green capitalism.
