The Rights of Nature in Ecuador by Didier Lacaze Static Preview

The Rights of Nature also referred to as the Rights of Mother Earth is a worldwide movement creating human communities that respect and defend the rights of nature.

Didier Lacaze was interviewed by videographer Barry Heidt of Sustainability Action Media (SAM) as part of an online video campaign to increase the Indigenous Voices of Sustainability, co-sponsored by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, focusing on wisdom keepers of Ecuador with the help of the Pachamama Alliance.  Editing support by Norman Austin of SAM.

Didier with Rosa Canalos (Kichwa) founded the Sacha Warmi Center—an educational resource that will serve many people—located on the outskirts of the Amazonian Rainforest in the Pastaza region of Ecuador. It is part of PROMETRA (Promoción de la Medicina Tradicional Amazónica), a local Ecuadorian initiative created in 2005 by Didier and Rosa who was born in the village of Canelos and is Didier's wife.
