The AGENTS Project has produced a series of films called ‘People who transform’, in which local people in the Amazon were invited to produce short movies using their mobile phone to briefly tell us their local initiatives by answering the following questions:
- what has been transformed?
- who is transforming?
- what are the outcomes?
- how they keep their transformative process going?
The goal was to give visibility to sustainable initiatives developed by local populations in the region from more recent to long-term initiatives. The series includes initiatives related to timber and non-timber management, fishing management, organic agriculture, agroforestry in small-farms and traditional communities, oil production in indigenous communities, art and craft by women’s organizations, social technology for irrigation, learning-practice for education and a social fund to collective projects.
The films are introduced by Eduardo Brondizio and the full playlist can be accessed here.
