Technicians and leaders of the Shuar Arutam People (PSHA) visited the Waorani communities of Meñepade and Konipade, to receive an experiential workshop to exchange knowledge with technical monitors of the Waorani Nationality, in the use of technology for mapping and community monitoring, in the framework of cooperation of the Amazonia 2.0 project, through EcoCiencia Foundation, and the program “Todos los Ojos en la Amazonía” (TOA), of the Hivos organization.
During the month of March, the consortium executing the Amazonia 2.0 project continued to make progress in various planning and training activities. The regional coordination began the process of forming an internal working group to study options for the project's sustainability and/or continuity.
One of the 2021 objectives for the Amazonia 2.0 project is to generate greater impact and media resonance, giving visibility to the processes and tools achieved by the project. During the month of April, we had the opportunity to see the fruit of this media work, being portrayed in two important articles in Mongabay, one of the most recognized media worldwide in the environmental and scientific sector.
