A London Climate Action Week event to discuss Brazil's social and environmental crises and how to respond to them.

About this event

Join us for this special two-hour discussion as part of London Climate Action Week on what has been happening in Brazil since the last climate summit, and the country’s worsening social and environmental crises.

The event will open with remarks from Txai Suruí, the Brazilian Indigenous leader who spoke at the opening ceremony of COP26. A 90 minute panel discussion with Txai, civil society organisations and finance representatives will follow.

The panel discussion will focus on how to turn the strong commitments on forests at COP26 into action, while crucially including Brazilian Indigenous peoples and local communities as a central part of it. We will also discuss how the finance sector can contribute and progress on their deforestation-free portfolio commitments by 2025.

Speakers on the panel:

  • Txai Suruí - Brazilian Indigenous leader
  • Graham Stock - BlueBay Asset Management and co-chair of the Investor Policy Dialogue on Deforestation (IPDD)
  • Louisa Casson - Head of Forests and Food, Greenpeace UK
  • Niki Mardas - Executive Director, Global Canopy
  • Moderated by Yula Rocha - People's Palace Projects.

You're invited to join us in person for this event at Chatham House in London.

Join us from 10.30am for a vegan breakfast. The event will start at 11am.
