While the Trump administration continues to undermine environmental protections domestically and abroad, China has been striving to position itself as a climate leader by halting the expansion of coal and expanding its renewable infrastructure at home. At the same time, China has also become the major financier of oil expansion in Latin America, often in key areas like the Amazon rainforest that must be preserved in order to combat climate change.

Join us for a discussion on Chinese investments in Latin American countries and their significant environmental consequences with Paulina Garzón, director of the China Latin-America Sustainable Investments Initiative; Kevin Koenig, Ecuador Program Director of Amazon Watch; and Katharine Lu, China Sustainable Finance Campaigner at Friends of the Earth.

The Green Bag will take place at Amazon Watch's office, feel free to bring your own lunch.
