Voices of the Landscapes: New paradigms for human-nature relations

Sep 23, 2021 | 2:30 PM - 3:45 PM


The Amazon is one of the most bioculturally-rich regions on the planet, housing a diverse plethora of species, communities, cultures, traditions, languages and ways of life. Over centuries, the region’s many Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPLCs) have developed a unique relationship with the forest, making them vital partners in the global fight to conserve it. This session will reflect on their rich knowledge of human-land-nature relations to envision a new, more equitable and sustainable Amazon, in which harmony and co-existence are foundations of development.
