Event description

Description

The Amazon forest is a vital resource of biodiversity sometimes known as the “lungs of the planet”. The indigenous communities who have lived there for millennia have an in depth knowledge of forest sustainable survival. Their elders, shamans and sabedores (wisepeople) believe that humans should live in perfect harmony with their surroundings, or else they will become ill - as will their environment. They have a great knowledge of plants that can be used to prevent and to cure illness, commencing with the sacred or spiritual world.

Dr Ann Simpson (Mitchell) from the University of Strathclyde will select experiences from more than 25 years of working with Amazon forest communities focussing on their traditional medicine. #InTheBotanics
