Are you joining us for Fixing the future at the CCCB in Barcelona on 7-8 June? As if 53 ‘FutureHero’ speakers wasn’t enough, we’re offering eight screenings and interactive workshops that let you get up close and personal with our themes of biodiversity, oceans, food and farming, cities and the climate crisis.
Let us transport you from from Peru to Indonesia via Barcelona in the year 2093…
⚡1. Guardians of the Forest: short film screening
Indigenous peoples are the best guardians of the forest: they make up 5% of the world’s population but safeguard 80% of its biodiversity (World Bank, 2016). As nations struggle to meet the Paris Agreement targets, indigenous peoples and the forests they protect are a ready-made solution to the climate and ecological crisis. Despite this environment defenders often face criminalisation and in 2017 more than 200 defenders were killed. Watch a series of short films from If Not Us Then Who? exploring these issues from tropical forest regions in Latin America and Indonesia.
The screening includes a special Q&A (Spanish only) with Larry Salomon, a young indigenous lawyer of the Mayangna nation from Awas Tingni, Nicaragua. Larry is currently studying International Law in Bilbao.
► 7 June: 10.00-11.00 (English) and 19.00-20.00 (Spanish) and 8 June: 09.30-10.30 (English) and 17.30-19.00 with special Q&A (Spanish)
⚡2. The making of The Zone of Hope: screening and Q&A
The Zone of Hope (TZOH) is an experience that enables us to personally feel the effects of climate change. Through immersive extreme technology, unique in Europe, visitors – 37,000 to date – have experienced what future generations will have to deal with if we do not stop climate breakdown. TZOH is an unprecedented project, combining awareness, commitment, innovation, and above all, hope, with an urgent call to action.

⚡8. Narratives on migration workshop, Eva Garzón, Global Displacement Lead, Oxfam Intermon
Understanding perceptions and language around migration is key to setting the terms of the public debate on climate migration. This Oxfam Intermon workshop will explore how current narratives risk aggravating rather than reducing the vulnerability of migrants and refugees, and polarising society further. We will look at climate-induced migrations and how these movements are portrayed in the media and seen by society. We will collectively explore and assess recommendations and tools to develop and disseminate a more positive narrative, based on evidence and values.
