This series will take place on Zoom, starting in April and ending in November of 2021 (see below for full schedule). All events are FREE and open to the public! The Conversations on a Changing Planet and Latin America covers a variety of topics for reflection and discussion that intend to reclaim our role as individuals and collective inhabitants of the continent of Abya Yala. From the impacts of a human induced climate change, to the violent dispossession of land suffered by indigenous and peasant communities, or the aggressive incorporation of the colonial food systems in our lives, too many groups of people have to struggle to survive in this changing planet. As a response, those who survive, are changing. They change their lives by moving, migrating, seeking for opportunities and escaping violence. Others stay and change the world they live in, sometimes by fighting racism and sexism, and protecting their lands, even at the cost of their own lives. Along human history, we know that change is the only stable thing, and as the song goes, “Así como todo cambia, que yo cambie no es extraño."
