Maya Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Climate Justice

Thursday, April 28 at 4:00-5:30 p.m. E.T (3:00 - 4:30 pm QRoo, Mex.)

Indigenous people throughout the world bear a disproportionate burden of the climate crisis. In this virtual panel, four Maya farmers and gardeners and an environmental grassroots organizer from the Yucatan Peninsula will share their experience and knowledge as they face climate change. The panel will address the following questions: How are their traditional practices being impacted? What role does traditional ecological knowledge play in mitigating them? How do local grassroots organizations work in the Maya forest to address the ecological and political implications of the crisis? What are the implications for climate justice?

Panel be will be in Spanish with English translation.
