After 14 months and 14 events in 4 countries the If Not Us Then Who? global roadshow culminated in Paris for a very special screening and an 8 day exhibition at Point Ephemere.

Bringing together indigenous partners from Indonesia, Central America, Amazon basin and Congo basin and more than 20 organisations it was our most ambitious series of events yet. The aim was to highlight the role indigenous peoples play in protecting the world’s forest and complement the work and messages at the indigenous pavilion at the COP21 venue. We wanted to bring these messages to the people of Paris.

There were presentations, powerful speeches film screenings, debates, market days and of course, painting, music, singing and dancing (often impromptu). Thank you to everyone who contributed.
