Latin America Week 2015: Planting dreams, gathering hopes: grassroots visions for global environmental justice


Planting dreams, gather hope: grassroots visions for global environmental justice

LASC is organizing its yearly Latin America Week, and as part of our annual tradition we will hold a conference focusing on grassroots alternatives to global environmental issues. The environmental crisis that the planet is suffering from has affected the most vulnerable population on the planet. Many people in Latin America have responded to this crisis by taking decisive action to challenge Government and corporate policies in order to seek environmental justice. We are pleased to announce that this year's speakers are the esteemed Indigenous rights activist Dr. Martin von Hildebrand from Colombia and veteran of the Water Wars in Bolivia, Maria Eugenia Flores.
