From Colombia to Brussels: a conversation with environmental defenders

28 March | 18:00 - 19:30

Carolina and Wilder, two activists from Falan, Colombia, are building a movement to defend their region against mining companies and their colonialism. They have the right to say no to the destruction of their region. Join the events during The Right to Say No Tour to hear about the experiences of these environmental defenders, how our “green” transition is impacting their lives and how degrowth might help their struggle.
In this lecture co-hosted by GreenTeam VUB, you will have the chance to listen to Carolina and Wilder sharing about their fight against mining in Colombia and how standing up for their rights comes with the risk and fear of being intimidated, stigmatised and persecuted.
