COP27 Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt
Mission at COP27:
Our mission is to ensure cultural diversity, amplify storytelling created in indigenous territories by indigenous peoples, and urge the implementation of the 5 demands at COP27
Why does COP27 matter to indigenous peoples?
Indigenous Peoples and Land are on the frontlines of the Climate Crisis and indigenous leadership, participation, and consent is not only just but also critical in the decision making processes. Governments have a responsibility to acknowledge loss and damage and begin to work on reparations by providing direct financing and implementing immediate climate adaptation plans. COP27 is crucial for advancing indigenous self-determination, indigenous sovereignty, and restoring the health of our planet.
