Earth Week Champion Spotlight: Pachamama Alliance

Thank you, Pachamama Alliance for being such a beacon of light, inspiring people around the world into Earth Caring action! We take this 4th day of Earth Week to pass the Global Compassion Torch to all who are part of the Pachamama Alliance Team making a positive difference a reality every day. Here is the Co-Founder of Pachamama Alliance, Bill Twist with the Global Compassion Torch sharing his light and gratitude.

We had the incredible opportunity to work with Pachamama Alliance in February bringing light and compassion to The 7th Generation Runners from Standing Rock in the heart of San Francisco as part of World Interfaith Harmony Week (see a video about the inspiring results of this event). Pachamama Alliance is a global community that offers people the chance to learn, connect, engage, travel and cherish life for the purpose of creating a sustainable future that works for all. Learn more about the story of why Pachamama Alliance is alive and thriving in the world in this video.

Here are some of the incredible impacts the Pachamama Alliance is igniting globally. Pachamama Alliance works in partnership with Indigenous People to attain permanent protection of the tropical rainforests of the headwaters region of the Amazon basin in Ecuador and northern Peru. Containing some of the highest levels of biodiversity on the planet, this is an area of immense ecological importance to the world.

There are 61 Pachamama Alliance Communities—local hubs where people work together to bring about a new future for life on Earth—in 21 countries, including the U.S., Mexico, China, Japan, Romania, and New Zealand. In 2016, Community Days were brought to 7 Pachamama Alliance groups, including Lima, Peru; Rochester, New York; and Beijing, China; equipping and empowering them in their vision to build a new society.

The Awakening the Dreamer program—Pachamama Alliance’s flagship educational program offered both in person and online—now has over 5000 trained Facilitators across the globe, offering the in-person Symposium in at least 16 languages and in more than 80 countries.

The Game Changer Intensive—an online course that picks up where Awakening the Dreamer leaves off and catalyzes the inner work of transformation, inspires and equips people to enter in effective collective action— and has now been taken by more than 4000 participants.
