The Amazon Complex – More than a Rainforest: Scientific & Transdisciplinary Approximations
Studying the Amazon is a life’s mission; accordingly, in 4 hours we will only raise three questions that are currently discussed scientifically and politically: What does it mean to be a region approximating a global climate tipping point? & How could a decolonial approach transform relationships to and within the Amazon? & Which alliances of diverging civil societies are imaginable? The first panel will lay scientific ground from which we approach complex interdependencies of multiple transitions in the Amazon; the second panel will concentrate on the question how those transitions could become just transitions. The third panel will explore ideas for a dialogue of climate crisis by diverse civil societies.
