We are always pleased to have the opportunity to document and facilitate events that promote collective dynamics, especially to provide solutions to social and environmental problems that affect multiple communities around the world.
This time, we traveled to Girdwood, Alaska, to support the First Peoples Convening on Climate-Forced Displacement. This event, led by New Stories, counted with the participation of 60 representatives of different indigenous groups from the USA and the Pacific, and with the presence of 15 organizations for Human Rights and environmental protection.
For three consecutive days, we listened and captured the stories about the situations that communities have had to face due to climate change, which have seriously affected the development of their cultural practices and traditions.
From the dialogue that we facilitated in the working tables, we obtained the inputs to design collective proposals, strengthen the relationships between the communities and build strategic alliances to promote a “governance approach toward an inclusive, community-based and human rights-centered one”.
