INTEGRATED/ INTEGRADO/ INTEGRADA

A bilingual (Spanish/English) magazine about Climate Change in Latin America.

This first issue focusses on Colombia. The government has not recognized the climate crisis and being a climate activist is extremely dangerous.

Moreover, 170 social and environmental leaders have been murdered in 2019 and it also happens to be the second most biodiverse country in the world. Colombia’s ecosystems are being violated by multinational extractivist and food industries. Many of us in the Global North are extremely lucky as we are able to protest with no fear.

This publication is opening up this conversation to not only Latin Americans but also to the people who are interested in climate justice and want to learn how we can help those that are unable to act against their own government. With articles confronting various problems that they are facing. Every article looks at the Climate and Ecological crisis in Latin America from different angles, for example, human rights, conflict and extractives.

Created completely digitally from Risograph and dry ink smart filters created so that the magazine looks printed (upholding the magazine's aesthetics) to hand-drawn Mayan alphabet inspired icons for each chapter.
