Across the planet, Indigenous peoples and local communities are on the frontlines of protecting critical forests, grasslands and other ecosystems from environmental threats. They often do so at extreme risk to their personal safety, and in isolation from external support. Join us on July 14 the celebrate the launch of Earth Defenders Toolkit, a newly released resource to support Earth Defenders.
This two-hour virtual event will bring together frontline defenders from across the globe to share stories of work they are doing on the frontlines, and highlight new tools and strategies that help put power in the hands of local communities.
The event will include case studies from three areas, an introduction to the newly released Earth Defenders Toolkit, and breakout groups where participants can connect directly and share resources and best practices with one another. The event will be held with English, Spanish and Portuguese translation.
