Pachamama România is an environmental NGO who’s mission is to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world. www.pachamamaromania.ro
We will start on September 2017 a massive campaign, Nature’s Rights (Drepturile Naturii) to gather signatures for the petition, which purpose is to consider nature as a living being and to have its rights recognized – to exist, to persist and to regenerate itself.
Through the legislative implementation of Nature’s Rights we wish for people to become aware of the direct connection to nature, to respect it and not to treat it as a good or as property.
There will be two separate sections, a national one, for which we need 500.000 signatures and an European one, for which we need 56.000 signatures.
Since 2011, when Pachamama România was created, until today, we have shared the idea of the Nature’s Rights project with tens of thousands of people, both directly through sports events where we participated, for example those created by ABRC, as well as through educational events (Natures’s Rights for a sustainable community, the „Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream” Symposium), going to tens of schools, high schools and colleges from Romania (Academy of Economic Studiest, Ecological University of Bucharest, International British School of Bucharest, Colegiul Național Gheorghe Lazăr etc) and through global events regarding environmental protection – COP 21 in Paris and the Rio+20 Earth Summit.
The Symposium is a transformative educational program that explores the challenges facing humanity at this critical moment in time and the opportunities we as a human family have to create a new future.
Changing the Dream
Awakening the Dreamer was created in response to an invitation from the Achuar people of the Ecuadorian Amazon to work in partnership to shift the dominant culture of consumption and alienation to one that honors and sustains all life.
Where Are We?
You’ll start with an examination of the ways in which the current “dream” of the modern world is impacting the environment, our relationship with one another, and our own sense of purpose.
How Did We Get Here?
You will explore how this all came to be, and confront the powerful unexamined assumptions that are at the heart of the current crisis we are in—as a species and as a planet.
A New Story
You’ll hear about the new story emerging at this time in history—a story that recognizes how profoundly connected everyone and everything is.
What is Possible Now?
You will come to see that a new future is possible and that a huge, unstoppable movement is already emerging and in action, committed to creating a new story for humanity.
We also organize a sports event for promoting Nature’s Rights and a healthy lifestyle in harmony with nature. This is the Roșia Montană Marathon which has reached its V-th edition. www.rosiamontanamarathon.ro
