Protecting the Protectors:  Addressing the Crisis of Attacks on Environmental Defenders

A featured ecosystem event at the Skoll World Forum co-organized with Global Witness, Not1More, Thousand Currents, the Environmental Defenders Fund of the Biodiversity Funders Group, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding.

12 April 2018 | 3:00 PM-4:30 PM 

Lecture Theatre, Martin School, Oxford University, UK

Four environmental defenders are — on average — killed every week. This violence is part of an intensifying global crackdown on civil society, threatening social entrepreneurs, activists and all who protect environmental and human rights. Join us in an interactive discussion to explore how to advance collective and scalable security and resilience. We will hear directly from Environmental Defenders about the challenges and risks they face.

Opening remarks from Bianca Jagger followed by a conversation with environmental defenders Claudelice Silva dos Santos and Odigha Odigha.
