/ba∙ca/ with New Naratif: Environmental Migration in Kalimantan
27 October 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
/ba∙ca/ with New Naratif is a reading group series that invites members to come together to discuss selected stories published by New Naratif.
Mass migration and environmental factors are deeply intertwined – but where migration once drove environmental changes in Indonesia, the reverse is happening today. How is this phenomenon linked to historical factors stretching back to colonial extractive practices, only to be echoed as the new capital of Indonesia takes shape in this province?
In this session of /ba∙ca/ with New Naratif, we’ll explore environmental migration in Kalimantan with the author of this month’s explainer, Lengga Pradipta, and environmental activist, Pangeran Nasution, placing the human story at the heart of this narrative.
We look forward to discussing Kalimantan’s Warning: The Intertwined Dynamics of Environmental Degradation and Internal Migration with you!
