Freddy Ehlers, Ecuadorian Minister of Buen Vivir, sat across the table from me at breakfast. I ate with not only Freddy; but also Bill and Lynne Twist, two of the co-founders of the Pachamama Alliance; and Freddy’s personal videographer, Enrique—not bad company.
Pachamama Alliance is a global community that offers people the chance to learn, connect, engage, travel and cherish life for the purpose of creating a sustainable future that works for all. With roots deep in the Amazon rainforest, Pachamama Alliance programs integrate indigenous wisdom with modern knowledge to support personal, and collective, transformation that is the catalyst to bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet. www.pachamama.org
