Real World Radio has launched a new short video produced for the Forests and Biodiversity Program of the environmental federation Friends of the Earth International. The video analyzes the financialization of nature and features several activists who have been working on issues linked to the financialization of nature for many years and from different perspectives.
Antonio Tricarico, of Re – Commons Italy, Danilo Urrea, of CENSAT Agua Viva – Friends of the Earth Colombia and Jutta Kill of the World Rainforest Movement are the speakers. They raised these ideas during Friends of the Earth International´s meeting on financialization of nature held in Paris, France, from May 26-28.
Real World Radio´s video aims to contribute to the analysis of a complex reality which is threatening the lives of several communities in different parts of the world.
The financialization of nature is also a tool used by capital to continue doing business while presenting their different strategies as solutions to the different crises. Polluting emission offseting mechanisms, especially the carbon market, which is putting a price on and selling carbon dioxide is a good example.
Several organisations and social movements working towards the Peoples Summit in Lima, Peru, to take place from December 8-12 in parallel to the United Nations COP 20 on Climate Change will strongly denounce the financialization of nature in these spaces.
