Flyer for Lise Sedrez talk

Environmental historian Lise Sedrez will speak on ‘‘The Gardens of Babilonia Hill: Reforestation, Climate Change and Favelas in Rio de Janeiro, 1985-2015.’’ The talk focuses on the community of Morro Babilônia, a small but traditional favela in Rio de Janeiro, and how it has developed strategies and dynamics to respond to changes in its urban ecosystem.

In particular, it examines feelings of loss and damage due to climate issues. It also discusses the challenges of community building within a megacity with many critical issues, such as violence, gentrification and economic crisis.
