German Première of documentary Frontera Invisible at COP Bonn

Impact of palm oil expansion for biofuels in the world: The Colombia case

Hosted by NABU at Climate Planet, Rheinauen Park Bonn – COP Side Event

Frontera Invisible is the true story of communities trapped in the middle of the world’s longest war, in which big landowners’ rush for palm oil to produce ‘green’ fuel has displaced peasant farmers and indigenous people. It has destroyed natural habitats and concentrated land in the hands of the rich.

One part environmental documentary and one part social research through victims’ testimonials, Frontera Invisible gives voice to the local communities that are fighting hard to reclaim their land while exposing the major pitfalls of biofuels policy.

The screening of the documentary will give the audience a chance to learn more about the consequences of our Palm Oil Demand in the rest of the world.

Following the screening, there will be time for discussion with one of the two directors of the documentary, Nico Muzi and the organizers represented by Trees Robijns from NABU.

Entrance is for free, please REGISTER HERE.

We would appreciate if you could forward this invitation to others that might have an interest in attending.

For any questions, please contact Trees Robijns (trees.robijns@nabu.de).
