Remembering Maria and Zé Cláudio : Earth Defenders from Amazonia, 10 Years On

(Photo credit: Felipe Milanez, 2010) (Para o português, veja abaixo) ** Registration for the zoom event in advance here ** On May 24, 2011, Maria do Espirito Santo and Zé Cláudio Ribeiro da Silva, nut collectors and members of the agroforestry project (Projeto Agro-Extractivista, PAE) of Praialta Piranheira in the Brazilian Amazon, were brutally murdered as a consequence of their engagement in protecting the forest from illegal logging and timber trafficking. Making their lives out of a non-exploitative and regenerative relationship with the forest, and passionate about the defence of the rights of both Amazonia and its people, Maria’s and Zé Cláudio’s deaths belong to the number of earth defenders whose lives are being taken, year after year, for opposing the infinite expansion of global economic growth and social metabolism (Global Witness 2019). In 2012, the pair were posthumously recognised as Forest Heroes by the United Nations Forum on Forests Secretariat for their work fighting illegal forestry. This May 27 14 - 15:30 CEST 2021, ten years later, we honor their memory and talk about their legacy for environmental justice struggles in Brazil and beyond. Join Zennström Professor in Climate Change Leadership, Stefania Barca, and Bartira Fortes, representative of Latinamerikagrupperna,...

How to Listen #2: Co-shaping an exchange of narratives and learning together.

Hunt out wild flowers, reach out, not to pick them but as an offer of intimacy. Stay open-hearted, don’t put your ear to the ground to listen for sap or soil, instead tune into the words written between the lines – visible in the way bluebell, pink campion, stitchwort offer up their secrets, have made themselves vulnerable against pale and dark greens. This is an offering – last chance to hear this moment’s prayer. Veronica Aaronson, from Nothing about the birds is ordinary this morning (Indigo Dreams, 2019) The Living Library is a conversational space that takes place in the intersection between fiction, action and research.

Fair Climate Transformation Governance – Interlinking carbon budgets, fair governance and COP26

09:00 - 10:30 UTC How can societies transform in order to fit within carbon budgets? This seminar describes Paris Agreement-based carbon budgets as a foundation for discussing the merits and shortcomings of various governance strategies, including potential COP26 outcomes, with a focus on social fairness and effectiveness in meeting climate targets.  While much is known about technological change and economic opportunities, it is far from well understood what citizens consider to be fair transformations and how governance systems can realise such expectations. This project draws on early insights from a new major research project (FAIRTRANS) as well as on experiences from a wide ranging panel. Facilitators: Jens Ergon and Isabel Baudish Speakers: Professor Kevin Anderson Professor Doreen Stabinsky Associate Professor Mikael Karlsson Mikael Leyi Clair Stockwell Jytte Guteland Karin Lexén
