Cerrado: The Forgotten Ecosystem

17 februari 2020 @ 19:30 22:00

After the success of last year, we want to invite you again for a “Cerrado evening” in Leuven. The same story but different experienced speakers and a new interesting documentary.

When it comes to deforestation, Brazil’s Amazon forest is often mentioned as the first place to be concerned. However, deforestation rates are three times higher in the Cerrado, another large biome in Brazil. The Cerrado is a savanna ecosystem that hosts high biodiversity with a high rate of endemic species and is therefore recognised as a biodiversity hotspot. Still, many people don’t know about the existence of the Cerrado and the enormous threats it is facing. This evening will try to raise awareness about the importance of the Cerrado.

A short introduction will be given about the Cerrado after which guest speakers will share their experiences with the Cerrado. Next, a short movie will be shown and hereafter, the floor will be open for discussion and questions. Throughout the evening, Brazilian drinks and snacks will be provided for a reasonable price. The exact time table of the evening will appear soon. Hope to see you then!
