Voices of Sustainability
Jan. 24, 2013 /3BL Media/ - EarthSayers.tv in coalition with Sustainability Action Media (SAM) announces an online video campaign featuring timely and on location interviews with Ecuadorian indigenous leaders. The campaign includes actively seeding the Web with these interviews to advance the wisdom of Mother Earth - our planet, peoples, and prosperity.
Earthsayers.tv, the largest Web library of sustainability thought leaders, is creating a special collection, Ecuador, with Ecuadorian wisdom keepers joining hundreds of other voices of sustainability, including those of indigenous peoples from around the world.
The campaign begins in the first quarter of 2013 when Barry Heidt, SAM producer and videographer, will visit Ecuador to document the wisdom keepers’ perspective on the Rights of Mother Earth. He will be connecting in Ecuador with Pachamama Alliance’s David Tucker, director of Pachamama Journeys, and Ecuadorian Natalia Greene, director of Fundación Pachamama's program on Rights of Nature, "to collaborate on the specifics of his journey.”
Individuals and organizations wishing to collaborate with and support Barry Heidt’s journey may contact him directly at 541-992-4230.
About Barry Heidt:
Awakening the dreamer, a symposium series by the Pachamama Alliance was the beginning of Barry's journey as a filmmaker and videographer seeking out wisdom keepers and one of the reasons why he influenced SAM's focus on the indigenous voices of sustainability which included the recent live streaming of the Wisdom from the Origins conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, September, 2012.
At the Bioneers 2010 Conference Barry documented the panel on the Rights of Nature at which Mari Margil, an associate director of CELDF announced the launch of The Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature and formally made public their Tungurahua Volcano Declaration. At that time, he interviewed Mari reading the declaration and sharing some history on the Global Alliance founding and the rights of nature movement. The Global Alliance then began a campaign for the signing of the Universal Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth introduced at the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth in Cochabamba, Bolivia, on the 22nd April – Earth Day 2010.
The exposure by Barry to the Global Alliance and the Universal Declaration coupled with his experience from Awakening the Dreamer, the Pachamama Alliance’s symposium series and his most recent work with Sustainability Action Media (SAM) inspires his journey to Ecuador.
