Debate: Climate and indigenous peoples
after the screening of THE TERRITORY, dir. Alex Pritz
Partner: UN Global Compact
Aware of their heavy dependence on the environment, indigenous peoples are fighting an unequal battle for their territories. They are activists conscious of the consequences of resource exploitation as well as the impact of construction, mining or large-scale agriculture on the climate. Many of them, especially in Central and South America, are dying, defending their (and indirectly also our) existence. Are they alone in this fight?
