Peoples Summit 2019

Monday 2 to Saturday 7 December,
University of Santiago de Chile
Global Justice Ecology Project and Biofuelwatch attended and presented at this important event, planned when the COP25 UN Climate Summit was still scheduled to take place in Santiago. The statements and workshops at the Cumbre were very radical and focused on identifying and addressing the root causes of the crises we are facing and strongly opposes the neoliberal false solutions we are being confronted with. Thanks so much to our allies at OLCA for inviting us to take part in this powerful event.

No Commodification of Nature
The Peoples Summit, which is convened year after year, brings together organizations and social articulations from various territories and sectors of the world to share experiences and promote alternative solutions to the system and strengthen global organization and local action to curb the socio-environmental catastrophe.
