Event description
Sacred Lands explores the relationships between people and the lands they inhabit, learning from guardians of biodiversity around the world

About this Event

What can we learn by considering the sacredness of land to indigenous people? Speakers will share with us how this transforms their care for the land and its dependent species (including us), and describe some of the threats that modern land use practices pose to maintaining this sacredness and diversity. The situation in Brazil will be given prominence.
