A forum to raise public awareness of the consequences that the “conservationist” approach to forests has for the people that live there, and to show how indigenous peoples have lived in harmony with nature, protecting it effectively.
There are lots of examples to focus on: the Ogiek and Senwger peoples of Kenya; the Benet people in Uganda; the Melayu and Dayak peoples of Indonesia; the Juruna of Brazil; the Chinantla, Totonacos and Nahua peoples of Mexico. Representatives of these indigenous peoples dialog with experts from around the world who work in the field.
