As deforestation goes unchecked, corporate plantations encroach on local lives, and mining disrupts the social and ecological equilibrium, Indigenous communities and their natural resources are deeply impacted. We hear from young social justice campaigners who have devoted their lives to defending and empowering these communities across the archipelago.

Dari kerusakan hutan yang tidak terkendali, perkebunan perusahaan yang mengusik kehidupan warga lokal, dan pertambangan yang mengganggu keseimbangan sosial dan ekologi, komunitas-komunitas pribumi dan sumber daya alam yang mereka miliki pun mulai terkena imbas buruknya. Kami mendengar seruan para pegiat keadilan sosial muda yang telah mengabdikan hidup mereka untuk memberdayakan komunitas-komunitas ini di seluruh belahan nusantara.
