Madagascar on Gaia

The Project explores the possibility of using virtual worlds to facilitate interaction between geographically dispersed beneficiaries and stakeholders in a donor funded programme in an immersive realistic way at significantly lower costs.

The general concept is that stakeholders, beneficiaries, programme managers and consultants can collaborate, meet, exchange ideas and discuss,  in a context appropriate format (conferences, workshops, face to face meetings) in an environment that makes the interaction real.

Walisuma: The best we have

 Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in America and it has an economy based on non renewal natural resources explotation. Unfortunately, this economy structure does not generate employment and do not create identity and do not take advantage of the knowledge of people.

Walisuma is a bet to position agricultural and artisans bolivian products into the most demanding niches based on four critical factors:

1. High quality products 

2. Recovering and appraisement of bolivian cultural identity using traditional and ancestral knowledge

Una gran vuelta atrás

Aquellos que creen que una vez que los indígenas pierden sus tierras no hay vuelta atrás, se equivocan. Después de casi 200 casos ante la corte y 20 años de trabajo, los Huichol de México han recuperado 56.000 hectáreas.

There is a saying that once Indian land is taken, there is no getting it back.  But Carlos Chavez and his work over the last 20 years with the Huichol or Peyote people of Mexico proves it ain’t necessarily so.

A grande devolução

Existe um ditado que diz que uma vez  tomada a terra indígena , não há  devolução. Mas Carlos Chávez e seu trabalho nos últimos 20 anos com os Huichol, ou Peyote, no México, prova que  isso não é necessariamente verdade. Através do apoio de seu grupo, os Huichol conseguiram obter de volta terras que haviam sido perdidas durante a conquista espanhola, a Revolução Mexicana e subseqüentes lutas políticas nos últimos 400 anos.
