This is a live online interactive session that explores what the implications are of imposing land laws on other cultures, and to understand the role indigenous communities are playing in COP26. Through a series of engaging activities we will explore the idea of “What is Home to You?”, and will then use this to dive deep into gaining an understanding of what land-grabbing is and why/ how it is accelerating, and what the impact is on the human rights of indigeounous communities around the world, from the Amazon to sub-Saharan Africa. We will then go on to explore through watching videos and further discussion, what communities around the world are doing to fight back, and how they are using platforms such as COP26 to raise the profile of their situations.
This lecture will open your horizons to a new way of perceiving the climate crisis and its solutions. We will look at the impact of land use and its effect on indigenous populations across the globe. This hour-long talk, will be delivered via Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. There will be many opportunities for questions and thought sharing, throughout.
