Atlas Mundial de Justicia Ambiental

El Atlas Global de Justicia Ambiental, una plataforma interactiva de mapas que analiza la trayectoria de más de un millar de conflictos ecológicos y espacios de resistencia a nivel mundial. El proyecto se propone llegar a los dos mil casos el 2015.

A Map of Conflicts… but also of struggle and resistance

The map tells a story of environmental devastation and despoliation, of ecocide and eco-apartheid, but also a story of resistance, and communities mobilizing to fight against the odds. Of the cases currently in the map, 17% are successes for environmental justice. Court cases were won, communities were strengthened, and access to the commons was reclaimed. These victories are a testament to the power of protest and the ability to impact the political process.

Conflicts can be a force for strong sustainability and democracy

We don’t aim to “solve” the conflicts but to reveal the actors and drivers and structural patterns behind them. The defense of territory, the defense of livelihood and the defense of the resources that communities depend on are the best weapon against endless capitalist exploitation of the ecological system we depend on.
