The Pachamama Alliance
is a not-for-profit organization that was born out of a relationship between a group of people from the modern world and the leaders of remote indigenous groups in the Amazon region of Ecuador.
Our mission is to empower indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture and, using insights gained from that work, to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world.
Our Work in the Amazon
Within indigenous communities, we support programs to promote maternal & family health, eco-tourism as an economic alternative to oil development, alternative energy sources such as solar, and fossil-fuel-free modes of transportation. We also support the safeguarding of the Amazon rainforest by providing legal assistance, promoting alternatives to fossil fuels and promoting the recognition of the rights the nature.
Changing the Dream of the Modern World
The other side of our work is to change the dream of the modern world – to create a shift in consciousness such that the protection of the rainforest is no longer necessary – as requested by our indigenous partners. In response, we created the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium
and spread it throughout the world to over 78 countries and 221,000 people.
Now we are excited to introduce our community to Up to Us
– a transformative pathway to social action that unleashes our power as global citizens to change the game. Up to Us builds on the international success of the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium by providing people a continued pathway of engagement to dive more deeply into the issues and possibilities presented in the Symposium.
