Comprometidos a formar líderes bioculturales

Comunicado especial

Geoversity

Durante el último año, Earth Train ha estado coordinando la planificación de Geoversity

Geoversity es una alianza de entidades recién formada que comparten un compromiso común: “aprender y asociarse con la naturaleza”.

Evolucionando como un ecosistema que mezcla ciencia, negocios y arte, Geoversity tiene como misión modelar formas mediante las cuales el diseño humano, la empresa y las expresiones creativas puedan evolucionar y prosperar inspiradas en la naturaleza y en armonía con ella. Entre los fundadores de Geoversity se encuentran: Fundación Earth Train, Rainforest Capital, Forest Finance, el Technology and Entrepreneurship Center de la Universidad de Harvard (TECH), el Center for Spatial Studies de la Universidad de Redlands y Fundación Ciudad del Saber.

Earth Train está alojando Geoversity.org, que es la secretaría de la alianza que, con el tiempo, se convertirá en una corporación sin ánimo de lucro.

Próximamente: Growing the Geoversity Ecosystem, editado por el Dr. David S. Ricketts, del Technology and Entrepreneurship Center de la Universidad de Harvard (TECH), un informe sobre la sesión de planificación de Geoversity celebrada en Panamá en febrero de 2016.

GRIT Graduation

Por Elliot Blumberg 23 de Julio de 2015

Greetings from GRIT! The participants for GRIT’s pilot program graduated to the city this evening after a four-day, three-night hiking and kayaking adventure that took them through the rainforest, into Guna Yala and out onto the region’s islands.

The journey commenced with a four-hour hike from Centro Mamoní to the Mamoní River. After practicing for a bit, GRIT dove in and spent the rest of the day on the river paddling to the campsite, where we got our tarps, hammocks and tents set up.

The next morning, after a hearty breakfast of oats and peanut butter, the GRIT squad stepped back onto the ultra lightweight kayaks and set off for Cangandí. After a light lunch at Cangandí Falls, the group surged on to the town, where the village kids met them to play in the river. The playing and dancing laster long into the night.

The final day and night were spent on the Guna Islands, where GRIT got an insider’s look into one of the Guna traditions of communal creation and imbibing of chicha fuerte - or fermented sugarcane (sorry, no photos were allowed!). And finally, the crew snorkeled, showered, relaxed and bedded down on Isla Aroma.

Contented Hearts on Children's Day

Por Elliot Blumberg 22 de Julio de 2015

Despite an enormous rainstorm that made complicated transport, Children’s Day at Centro Mamoní went off without a hitch. We picked up the students, parents and teacher from San José and returned for a day of coloring, cartoons, piñatas, food and playing in the pool.

Kael, Rachel and our awesome volunteers - Bonnie, Devon and Kirsten - colored with the kids while the parents prepped lunch. Afterwards, Pablo premiered the animated film Tarzan for the kids - a visual delicacy for people in the valley, many of whom don’t have access to TV or the internet. Everyone took special care while playing in the pool, but that didn’t stop us having fun, which continued with breaking the piñata.

Overall, it was a positive day and we can’t wait for the next excuse to bring up San José’s students!

Corazones Contentos Meet the GRIT-lings

Por Elliot Blumberg 19 de Julio de 2015

Another synergistic energy between Earth Train programs has descended upon San José! Corazones Contentos has teamed up with GRIT to build four more raised beds to provide future food security in San José and alleviate the town’s dependence on food donations. This (and all other work on the garden) are the product of hours of work from Earth Train’s co-directors of food production systems and community management, Rachel Worthington and Pablo Tocalini. Way to go, team!

Corazones Contentos hopes to replicate this technique in all four villages of the valley, bringing food security and a big boost in quality of life to everyone in Mamoní.
