About Pachamama Alliance

The mission of Pachamama Alliance is to empower indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture and, using insights gained from that work, to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world.

Protecting the Amazon Rainforest

Since 1997 we have worked in partnership with indigenous people to attain permanent protected status of the sacred headwaters region of the Amazon basin in southern Ecuador and northern Peru, an area of pristine tropical rainforest recognized as containing the highest levels of biodiversity in the entire Amazon basin and possibly the world.

Our initial efforts provided legal and technical expertise to strengthen indigenous self-governance so they could preserve their lands and cultures, including mapping, land titling, and sustainable economic development.

Today, we provide ongoing support to five indigenous nationalities by funding trainings, workshops, administrative support, and special assemblies where indigenous groups can come together to discuss their constitutional rights and define their work to defend their territories from oil and other extractive industries.

At the request of our indigenous partners, we began to bring visitors from the modern world to the rainforest with our Pachamama Journeys program, offering a direct experience of Achuar wisdom and Pachamama Alliance’s vision. These journeys supported—and continue to support—ecotourism projects in Achuar territory, creating economic alternatives beyond selling land to oil companies.

Changing the Dream of the Modern World

To further protect the lands and cultures of the Amazon rainforest, our indigenous partners requested that we work to “change the dream of the modern world”—shifting the culture of separation and overconsumption to a culture that honors and sustains life.

In response to that request, Pachamama Alliance expanded its work to include bringing forth a new dream: an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet.

To do this, Pachamama Alliance created the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium as well as the other offerings on the Up to Us engagement pathway—a set of programs designed to equip people with vision, commitment, tools, resources, and community to bring forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world.

These programs are designed to wake people up to the most critical issues of our time; pierce through apathy, resignation, and hopelessness; and inspire, educate and connect people, empowering them to become part of a community working together for game-changing solutions to achieve a new dream for humanity.
