Guardians of the River Atrato: Racism & Resistance
Guardians of the River: An Online Course Talk with Richard Moreno Rodriguez
In this session, we speak to the leader of the Interethnic Forum of Chocó and Guardians of the Atrato River representative Richard Moreno. Richard will talk about the landmark ruling that pronounced the Atrato the first river in Colombia to be a legal person under the rights of nature framework. Richard will discuss the power of Black and Afro-descendent tradition in local river guardianships within the Chocó region of Western Colombia. Why does racism and negative stereotyping continue to define river ecology sand environmentalism?
This event is part of the Guardians of the River online course, offered by Advaya and Guardians Worldwide.
