Bringing together research and education from  Norway and Brazil, Margherita Paola Poto and Giulia Parola will lead a team with the aim to rethink and reinterpret water rights through empathy (ability to comprehend and share the feelings of others), compassion (ability to feel together), and care (ability to take restoring actions).

The goal is to enhance our study programs and develop ground-breaking research with an innovative model of collaborative water governance (CWG), built with a platform on critical legal and community-based research (the CL&CBR platform), from the perspective of integral ecology. The innovative CL&CBR platform consists of modular courses developed with academic and non-academic partners within existing study programs (UiT, Unirio, UFRRJ, Legal Creatives LLC, LegalHack LTDA, the Chiquitano indigenous people from Vila Nova Barbecho and other aldeias, Brazil). The dissemination of the project results will have societal, environmental, and scientific impacts aligned with the Horizon Europe Strategic Plan 2021-2027 and Agenda 2030.
