Kichwa People of Sarayaku

The indigenous Kichwa people of Sarayaku in the Ecuadorian Amazon have been fighting oil drilling in their territory for years. They have done so using “Living Forests,” a concept that sees the forest as a living entity with its own rights. This unique approach to conservation has garnered international attention and stands as a testament to Ecuador’s complex relationship with nature and sustainability.

Recognizing the Rights of Nature

Ecuador was the first country in the world to recognize the “Rights of Nature” in its constitution. Adopted in 2008, the constitution redefines the nation’s relationship with its ecosystems by acknowledging that nature has “the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate its vital cycles.” This groundbreaking legal framework has inspired environmental movements around the globe and sets Ecuador apart as a leader in sustainable governance.
