Mecila Civil Society Workshop: Climate Interdependencies Between Europe and Latin America/Abya Yala

Renata Motta (Univ. Heidelberg) and Marco Teixeira (Univ. Heidelberg) will be part of the workshop organized by the University of Berlin’s Latin America Institute and the Mecila Center delving into the intricate ties between Europe and Latin America. Over 500 years of historical interplay, shaped by colonialism, have left indelible marks on these regions. Now, as climate change takes center stage, diverse perspectives emerge.

This collaborative event on January 18-20, 2024, aims to bridge intellectual and regional perspectives, fostering dialogue and seeking solutions. Themes include ecological debt, colonial dependencies, and building a fairer planet. Join the discussion on shared interests and the potential for global climate collaboration.

The discussion in which Motta and Teixeira will participate as speakers is titled “Agrarextraktivismus, Frauen und Ernährung” (Agrarian Extractivism, Women, and Nutrition) and it will take place on Friday 19 at 11:30. Almudena Abascal (FIAN Deutschland), Wolfgang Hees (Via Campesina) will also participate and
Raquel Rojas (FU Berlin, Mecila) and Ana Maria Veintimilla (Instituto de Estudios Ecologistas del Tercer
Mundo) will moderate the discussion.
