Window on the World Talk: Solutions in the Amazon – T269 (Face to Face and Online)
15 September 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm BST
Nicola Peel has been working in the Ecuadorian Amazon for 20 years. Nicola now plans to continue her work saving rainforests from afar.
She will share her incredible achievements and experiences, including building hundreds of rainwater systems, staying with indigenous communities only reached by river and visiting the farms in the agroforestry project she started six years ago. The projects she has been involved in are creating incredible results in alleviating poverty and preventing deforestation.
We will also hear her story of being locked down for five months in the 12,000 acre Los Cedros Reserve and what it was like to live amongst such biodiversity.
Please note: Due to easing of social distancing measures, face to face talks currently have a capacity of 45 attendees. This is set at 65% of full capacity to ensure safety for our users. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.
This talk will be delivered face to face and online (via Zoom) simultaneously. Please ensure that you select the correct ticket type when making your booking.
