PRESENTATION
This roundtable aims at showing how polluting the environment affects the health of populations, would it be because of oil extraction as in the Ecuadorian Amazon (Chevron) or the use of agrochemical pesticides and fertilizers by transnational corporations (Syngenta). The means to fight on the ground and through justice will also be discussed. How to better access to justice and obtain reparation for the damages caused to the environment and people? How to protect our earth against the ravages of transnational corporations (TNC)? How can we build together a better future for the future generations?
