Free event

We inaugurate the Berta Cáceres Arena, in the name of the activist who was killed for defending environmental and indigenous rights.

The Berta Cáceres Arena is dedicated to young, indigenous and migrant networks, and to some specific production chains that were considered in terms of alliances among manufacturers. How can these words, apparently so different, be connected? The main characters of the arena will try to answer this question, with an opening ceremony that will disclose the key points of the program. 

Indigenous people are the constant victims of a development tainted with negative implications and by all sorts of conflicts; as a result, they have to flee their ancestral lands and territories. A similar exodus puts in danger the safeguard of biodiversity in the abandoned areas and their future, as younger generations will not be taught by their elders the same perennial notions that helped protect their lands for centuries. On the other hand, migrants are forced to face a wide array of challenges, ranging from discrimination to violence, from the lack of access to public services to the loss of cultural identity, especially in young people.

Young people, migrants and indigenous populations alike all perceive food as the focal point to keep their roots alive and renovate them for a fairer, cleaner and more sincere world. 


  • Activists representing thematic networks and arena partners.
