Addressing the tensions between extreme poverty and environmental conservation
On July 8th, from 1pm EDT to 215pm EDT, this webinar brings together activists from the Quilombola community in Brazil and the Maasai community in Tanzania, both facing
threats to their lands, identities and cultures; professionals in the field of social and environmental justice and human rights; and international policy-makers in the realm of environmental conservation and management. 

Together, panelists will discuss how environmental conservation should not be used against the human rights of people and communities living in poverty and will highlight examples of communities acting to protect and preserve their environment and culture.
