Manuel Ruíz Parra, Suyusama* Programme, Pasto, Nariño, Colombia

In the southern part of Colombian state of Nariño, we have started down the path towards local and regional sustainability, understood as a life choice in harmony with the surrounding environment. We are inspired by the fact that the region has conserved its great ancestral wisdom, the inheritance of the Pasto and Quillacinga Indians, the ancient inhabitants of this area.
