For almost five decades, Ecuador has put oil extraction at the core of its development policy and planning.
As a result of the continued expansion of oil operations, local communities in the Ecuadorian Amazon have suffered irreversible environmental, economic and social damages.
Join us to watch the documentary 'All Eyes on the Amazon' to hear their stories and to learn about how they engage in a community-based environmental monitoring initiative that uses modern technology to document the socio-environmental impacts of oil extraction activities. The documentary was awarded the human rights prize by Amnesty International Italy at the the Sicilia Ambiente Festival.
During the event Dr Lorenzo Pellegrini and Professor Murat Arsel will also briefly speak about their research on this topic, including as part of the 'All Eyes of the Amazon Project' led by Hivos and Greenpeace.
