Indigenous Responses to Climate Change: Perspectives from the Americas

Monday, November 29, 2021 12:30 pm EST

Please join us for the first ever event organized collaboratively by the University of Notre Dame’s Latin-American Global Centers (Brazil, México, and Chile) and the Americas Research Network International (ARENET) and is designed to align with and contribute to the Notre Dame Forum 2021, “Care for Our Common Home: Just Transition to a Sustainable Future.”

Drawing on the rich cultural diversity of groups throughout Latin America, this panel seeks to center the voice of indigenous communities and their concerns about climate change. At this crucial period, and as the Notre Dame Forum invites us to consider a just transition to a sustainable future, we must engage all stakeholders to determine how best to care for our common home.

Rev. Robert A. Dowd, C.S.C., associate professor of political science and vice president and associate provost for interdisciplinary initiatives, will serve as moderator for the panel.
