Democracy Classroom: The Human Story and Kalimantan’s Environmental Migration
7 November @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
New Naratif’s Democracy Classrooms are a safe space where our community can come together, articulate our thoughts, and practice democracy.
After experiencing 150 years of environmental degradation caused by migration, the indigenous people of Kalimantan are now the ones being forced to migrate. This is a warning from Kalimantan for us to reverse our fundamental assumptions about natural resources, nationalism, colonialism, capitalism, and development, and ask ourselves: “Who profits? Who suffers? And, what can we do?”
Join our conversation in this upcoming Democracy Classroom: The Human Story and Kalimantan’s Environmental Migration with Lengga Pradipta, the author of this month’s explainer!
For a deeper understanding on the topic and interesting insights, don’t miss out Lengga’s explainer here.
Lengga Pradipta is a researcher who has focused on human ecology and migration issues. Previously she worked in several international organisations and also research institutions. Her latest writing could be found in Routledge book series: Risk Perception and Disaster Management of Women in Dealing with Floods in Urban Indonesia.
