In this seminar organized by the Political Ecology research group, Dr Cristina Inoue will discuss alternative approaches to sustainability in the Amazon.
The triple planetary crisis - combining climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution - is coupled with the 'great inequalities' of wealth, income, gender, race and access to public services. However, the political-economic system that brought us here has only provided tech-fixes and compromrises.
Listening to voices from many worlds could be one of the pathways to a safe and just planet for humans and the more-than-humans. This seminar aims to put Amazonia at the centre of this endeavor.
About the speaker
Cristina Inoue's research focuses on global environmental governance/politics and socioenvironmentalism in the Brazilian Amazon. She is particularly interested in the interplay of networks of actors, power relations, justice and governance institutions that either have negative socio-environmental impacts on the local peoples, the forest, biodiversity and global climate or offer alternatives/resistance to predatory development models.
