This episode of The Green Interview features Pablo Solón, a social activist who was formerly the Ambassador of the Plurinational State of Bolivia to the United Nations and its chief negotiator on climate issues. He was instrumental in organizing the World People's Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth, the 2010 gathering convened by Bolivian president Evo Morales to give the poor and the global south an opportunity to respond to the failed climate talks in Copenhagen. That conference resulted in the Universal Declaration Of The Rights Of Mother Earth, a document that currently has no legal status, but reflects a comprehensive alternative vision of the earth and the human relationship with it. Solón is currently Executive Director of Bangkok-based Focus on the Global South, an activist think tank established in 1995 to "challenge neoliberalism, militarism and corporate-driven globalization while strengthening just and equitable alternatives." The organization works in solidarity with the "global south" - particularly Asia, Latin America, and Africa where the vast majority of humanity is marginalized and dispossessed by the forces of globalization.
