Those participating in the launch include, Júlia Mello Neiva, coordinator of the Conectas Defence of Socio-Environmental Rights programme; Gabriel Mantelli, an adviser on the same programme; Conrado Hubner Mendes, a professor at the University of São Paulo and a researcher at the Centre for the Analysis of Freedom and Authoritarianism and Rafaela Rosa, a Federal Justice judge in region 4. Thaynah Gutierrez, also an adviser on the Conectas Defence of Socio-Environmental Rights programme, will be the mediator.
The publication consists of a collection of articles and arose out of a partnership between Conectas, iCS and JOTA. The importance of discussions on human rights and related themes, such as sustainable financing, strategic litigation, social mobilisation, tackling socio-environmental racism and the regulation of the trade in greenhouse gas emissions are placed at the centre of the debate concerning climate issues.
The e-book, with the support of the iCS (Institute for Climate and Society), contains interviews and essays written by Sônia Guajajara, Ailton Krenak, Nego Bispo and other socio-environmental and human rights activists and researchers.
