You Are Invited to The Virtual Round Table: "Sustainable Development, Environmentally Engaged Art, and Preservation of Local Culture."

The vast Amazonia ecosystem not only plays a crucial role locally, but its contribution to global climate regulation, through its influence on the water cycle and carbon storage, makes it a key player on a global scale. It is a shared responsibility to care for and conserve both its natural biodiversity and cultural heritage. Art plays a fundamental role, making visible its vast spectrum of colors in nature, cultures, territories, and artistic traditions of the Amazon region. The panelists will share their experiences and knowledge on how media and art are essential tools to find innovative solutions to the challenges facing this region of our planet.

The panelists are:

  • Sarah duPont, President and Founder Amazon Aid Foundation
  • Roberto Huarcaya, Artist of Amazonia: A BioCreativity Hub and creator of the Amazogramas series
  • Moderator: Ana María Ibañez, IDB’s Vice President of Sectors and Knowledge / Tatiana Schor, IDB’s Unit Chief of the Amazon Region
