Dejusticia and the Racial Discrimination Watch opens their call to the First Global Workshop on Human Rights Strategies for Indigenous Leaders in the Global South. The workshop will be held in Colombia in December 2017. The call for proposals is open until June 10th.
The workshop will be focused on the theme of indigenous communities’ rights to participation and territory in the context of the extractive industry.
The Workshop has three main objectives.
- Strengthen alliances and connections between activists and indigenous organisations from the Global South.
- Strengthen participants’ skills in analysis, advocacy, and mobilisation, through sessions focused on collective learning and reflection on these issues.
- Build a global strategy for the defense and promotion of indigenous rights.
