In the third parallel table of the Session: Science for the Preservation of the Life of Mother Earth and of the Human Being, researchers, scientists, representatives of indigenous peoples, humanists, and professors, presented their proposals under the subject New proposals to stop the impact and adaptation to climate change.
Manuel Díaz, general director of the ecological channel of Venezuela: Ecovision, was the moderator of this space for dialogue and discussion on environmental issues. The event was attended by students, environmentalists, and the general public.
Maruthi Balaji Bhaskar, an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Technology at the College of Science and Technology at the University of South Texas, spoke on "Adapting to global changes in the environmental and geological environment.”
Balaji said: "We need energy efficiency, adapt to make communities more sustainable ... It is necessary to demonstrate that there is global warming, that is happening, and through education is how we can contribute to the human being. "
Next, Amadeo Martínez, a member of the Central American Indigenous Council (CICA), spoke about the "Vision of Indigenous Peoples and Science for Adaptation to Climate Disorder."
Martínez said that in indigenous peoples lies a wealth of biodiversity, water, and forests, even so, the main indicators of poverty are concentrated in these communities, but the most important thing is that natural resources are maintained.
María Luisa Cataño, representing the Center for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research (CIEMAT) in Spain, spoke on "Production of renewable energy to preserve life on Mother Earth."
Cataño said that it is necessary to change the energy paradigm in the world towards a model of production and use of low carbon energy that will slow down and reverse global warming and alleviate others of the environmental impacts produced in the electric generation.
To close the presentations, NASA researcher and scientist, Hannah Jurado, presented the exhibition on "Vision of indigenous peoples and science for adaptation to climate disorder."
Jurado commented that to innovate and contribute to a positive change, we must educate society, that way you will see the results.”
