La Strategia UE sulla Biodiversità 2030


 

Un evento online unico: l’occasione per ascoltare le voci di indigeni e attivisti che lottano contro il furto delle terre indigene promosso nel nome della “conservazione”. 


EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030: What’s in it for indigenous peoples and local communities?
(La Strategia dell’Unione Europea sulla Biodiversità per il 2030. Quali implicazioni per i popoli indigeni e le comunità locali?)

Data: 19 Novembre 2020, h. 09:00 - 13:00 

 

La Strategia UE sulla Biodiversità 2030 propone di convertire il 30% delle terre e dei mari europei in “Aree Protette”. 

E, cosa fondamentale, la Commissione Europea vuole che lo stesso obiettivo sia adottato in tutto il mondo in occasione del Vertice della Convenzione sulla Diversità Biologica del prossimo anno.

Se dovesse succedere, milioni di persone indigene e locali saranno ridotte a vivere in povertà senza terra. È la #GrandeBugiaVerde. 

Ora, per la prima volta, indigeni e attivisti avranno la possibilità di raccontare ai decisori politici europei cosa pensano della conservazione. 

Questa conferenza riunirà rappresentanti dei popoli indigeni e delle comunità locali di Africa, Asia e America Latina, ONG, funzionari della Commissione Europea ed eurodeputati. 

Siete calorosamente invitati a partecipare. Tutti possono seguire la conferenza: è sufficiente registrarsi qui in anticipo, gratuitamente.

Se ti registri, potrai beneficiare della traduzione simultanea (in inglese, francese, spagnolo e russo) e potrai anche fare domande.

Se invece non vuoi registrarti, guarda l’evento in diretta su Facebook (senza traduzione simultanea). 

E dopo aver ascoltato il dibattito, passa all’azione – e contribuisci a fermare la proposta del 30%.
