The 2021 Global Biodiversity Festival was a 3-day virtual event celebrating the weird and the wonderful, the challenges life faces and some good news conservation stories.

As an activist, filmmaker, author, and creator, Céline Cousteau focuses on highlighting the interconnectivity between humans and Nature by leveraging the power of storytelling and collaboration through documentaries, jewelry and sculpture designing, consulting with corporations and foundations, public speaking, and co-creating AR/VR content.

Her talk focuses on lives of the Indigenous Peoples of the Vale do Javari in the Brazilian Amazon who asked Céline to tell the world their story. Céline takes us on a journey to the Amazon and back to our homes revealing the common threads between their existence and ours.

Watch her presentation, “Interconnected - You and the Indigenous Peoples of the Vale do Javari, Amazon”.
