Naming ecocide

The scientific evidence clearly indicates that the present rates of greenhouse gas emission and ecosystem destruction will have catastrophic consequences for our environment. Together with the political, diplomatic and economic initiatives, international law has a role to play in the transformation of our relationship with the natural world. It is in this context that, in late 2020, the Stop Ecocide Foundation convened a panel of independent experts for the legal definition of ecocide. Three of these twelves lawyers, Philippe Sands (United Kingdom), Pablo Fajardo (Ecuador) and Rodrigo Lledó (Chile), will talk about the work involved in preparing a practical and effective rendering of the crime of ecocide, and how this, in June 2021, provided the basis for a consensus about a basic text offering a definition of ecocide as an international crime. The inclusion of ecocide in the Statute of Rome would add a new crime to the practice of international law. It may also contribute to a change of awareness, one that points in a new direction in terms of protecting the environment, one with a more collaborative and effective legal framework safeguarding our future together on the planet we share. They will talk to the British Ambassador in Peru, Kate Harrisson.

Alex Beard in conversation with Fernando Bolaños Galdós

The future of education

Llwyfan Digidol Cymru – Wales Digital Stage

One of the great experts on what characteristics education will need in order to face the challenges of tomorrow’s world is Alex Beard (United Kingdom). He is a member of Teach For All, a network of independent organizations that work for global education, and author of Natural Born Learners, an important book that draws on two years of travel around the world observing educational models in very different places, particularly ones that have brought success in terms of social or technological development. At this event, Beard will talk about the challenges faced by education today –particularly with the Covid-19 pandemic– and how we can move towards forms of education that face up to the difficulties of our times: health emergencies, the climate crisis, the dizzying advance of technology, and social inequality. He will talk to Fernando Bolaños Galdos, also an expert on education.
