In this episode, we speak with Leila Salazar-López, Executive Director of Amazon Watch. Leila recounts her recent trip to COP27 in Egypt, and discusses Amazon Watch’s responsibility at the Conference to amplify the roles that indigenous people and indigenous lands play in solving the climate crisis. We talk about corporate values that center indigenous voices, women, and the rights of nature as key strategies in climate conversations, and Leila explains further how big banks and corporations have gotten in the way of climate progress — and how these same institutions can be a part of the solution through investment, financing, partnerships, and collaborations.
