In Belgium vzw Putumayo wants to enrich the debate concerning development, self-determination and sustainability with the vision and the story of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon Rainforest.
The context and themes of the Putumayo projects can be interesting in different ways for you, your organization or school. The Amazon Region is an area that sparks the imagination of many people and is strongly represented in the news due to its high biodiversity and the treats it is facing nowadays. From the theme of 'rights of the indigenous peoples' a lot can be learned concerning intercultural questions. And because our functioning is very local, on a small scale and concrete there is the possibility to feel involved, even for those who haven't been to the area.
Vzw Putumayo can provide lectures, interactive school activities and other activities with extensive picture and movie material
