Kawsak Sacha

The Kawsak Sacha declaration aims to preserve the territorial spaces of native people, relate with them in a sustainable way, and to maintain the material and spiritual relationship established by native people with the forest and the beings that inhabit the forest. Their living territory is, and will continue to be, free of any type of extractive activities such as oil, mining, wood extraction, biopiracy or others similar activities. They propose a life model based on their rich culture’s criteria, that includes uncontaminated rivers abundant in fish, family life (ayllu) and social organization.
