We are part of the traditional community of Rosario Islands, in the Caribbean / Colombia.
Several communities in the Colombian Caribbean have suffered a great affection in terms of displacement, deaths, loss of their cultural legacies and their ancestral knowledge. Not just because of armed actors, but also because an excluding economic model. Added to this is, the lack of opportunities and support to develop autonomously according to their practices and customs, has deeply affect their possibilities of creating individual and collective wellbeing, hand in hand with the care of the bidiversity. An important part is to recognize that the effects of the violence are not only individual, they are collective and the territory is also a victim, as it has been recognized in the Law of Victims of Colombia.
In this context, we offer UBUNTU as a pilot of a Community Based Training Center for Peace Building and Conservation, with a holistic/ integral approach that shows with practical examples, how to create sustainable solution of the social, environmental, economical and cultural dimensions.
Also, this initiative has become a beautiful Ecotourism place, that is part of the “Alliance ORIKA Ecotourism”, with other 12 initiatives inside the community of Islas del Rosario.
