SINFONÍA TRÓPICO will present the main results of a year of events from the 17th till the 22nd of November.
SINFONÍA TRÓPICO raises awareness about the loss of biodiversity and the risks of deforestation and climate change in Colombia through events that combine art and science, to bring scientific concepts closer to the community, in a simple and inspiring language.
SINFONÍA TRÓPICO has worked in five specific regions of Colombia (Urabá, Orinoco, Amazonia, Chocó, Páramos), each characterized by its richness in species and unique ecosystems. In these regions socio-economic changes are latent and this situation has put local communities and the biodiversity of the areas under pressure. At the same time, a complex set of economic interests has further threatened cultural diversity and traditional knowledge.
SINFONíA TRÓPICO creates spaces for dialogue and debate on the value of biodiversity and nature, through workshops and interaction between scientists, artists and communities. It also raises awareness about one of the greatest environmental challenges and extreme risk to the human species: the destruction of rainforest and loss of genetic diversity on our planet.
SINFONÍA TRÓPICO will host one week of events, exhibitions and debates in Bogotá, to show the results of one year of work in the different regions in Colombia. From November 17 – 21 concerts, performances, panel discussions, screenings, exhbitions and activities in the public space will take place. The entrance is free and open for the public.
