Virtual Roundtable on Socio-Environmental Rights in Colombia
November 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Ethnic groups in Colombia are increasingly at risk as extractive economies expand into their ancestral lands to open mining and agribusiness frontiers. Leaders from Colombia’s Pacific coast—a region of Indigenous and Black traditional territories—will discuss the rights of their communities, the impact of climate change, and the consequences of human rights violations on their livelihoods.
The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program and the Center for Environmental Justice at Colorado State University invites you to a virtual roundtable discussion on Socio-Environmental Rights in Colombia: Insights from Black and Indigenous Leaders. The free, public event will be in Spanish with simultaneous translation.
