Whilst the European Union continues to express concern for the increased impact of climate change on the planet, those defending their territories and the environment continue to be attacked for their activism across the world.

This alarming trend is present in Latin America where the women defenders of land, territory and the environment are particularly vulnerable.  With this in mind, PBI will be accompanying five women and one man from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Colombia to different parts of Europe in order to exchange experiences and perspectives about protection and self-protection from a holistic perspective. 

These defenders will share information about their own situation of risk, as well as the cases they are working on.
