Challenge

Unsustainable agricultural practices have degraded land in several Shipibo communities. Garbage fires also incinerate vegetation, hindering reforestation efforts.

Solution

This initiative sets out to reforest degraded land with useful and diverse tree species to support ecological regeneration and social engagement with the environment.

Long-Term Impact

Currently working with 5000 Shipibo, our goal is to effectively partner with the whole Shipibo nation (35,000 people) to co-create a web of healthy, vibrant communities that work symbiotically with the forest they depend on. Linked by permaculture impact centers, communities will pair landscape regeneration with entrepreneurship to create right-livelihood opportunities that cultivate awareness and sovereignty - growing sustainable economies, revitalizing culture, and educating for resilience.
