Social conflict over wind power in Brazil

I am happy to post this mini-documentary on the social conflicts and land grabbing as a result of the wind-power boom in Ceara, Brazil.  Low-carbon projects are not inherently socially just. Innovation requires not only technological change but attention to the social and economic structures – and how they are either changed, reinforced and for whom.  Loss of water access, land access, and thus livelihoods on Ceara’s coastal region. Green does not translate to good. Check out the Instagram account for the LaboCart Research group at UFC responsible for this project – click here.
