Promoting cooperation between organised civil society at a global level is key to addressing the greatest challenge in our history as humanity, climate change. With this cooperation, an increasingly resilient, informed and connected international civil society continues to be formed. Consequently, empathetic connections and transnational learnings are created. This offers, in the middle and the long term, the tools to achieve sustainable policies on human rights and the rights of nature at a national and international level.
In this space we want to inform and promote the work of civil society initiatives that we know first-hand. These are initiatives with which we have worked directly, a basis of trust has been created. We invite you to support their valuable work, their actions and efforts to create new, more conscious human and resilient paths.
Yonton Te Initiative with its LumHa Demonstration Farm
The Yonton Te Initiative is a regenerative agriculture and livestock project that promotes ecological and social development, protecting forests and the natural processes of animal and plant life. Yonton Te means “heart of a tree” in the Tsotsil language, one of the native languages of Chiapas, Mexico. It is there where this project was born and where reforestation and soil regeneration are carried out on a demonstration farm (Rancho LumHa’), as well as in the neighbouring communities.
Yonton Te seeks to save and regenerate the mountains of Chiapas, working hand in hand with neighboring communities to seek alternatives for growth and human fulfillment in their own lands. The essential combination of creating economic opportunities for local communities – especially for young people – while strengthening the transformation and action, makes Yonton Te a unique initiative worthy of encouragement.
