Asociation ANDES (Asociación Para la Naturaleza y el Desarrollo Sostenible)

The Asociación ANDES seeks to advance a rights-based approach to human development by creatively using Sumaq Causay (Buen Vivir), the ancient Andean principle of wellbeing, to merge lessons from the past with those of the present to build holistic and resilient communities and biodiverse food and agricultural systems for the future. To this end, ANDES carries out independent participatory action-research and local‑global networking and alliance building. ANDES is actively scaling up and scaling out its innovations through south-south knowledge and exchanges of experience and alternative educational programs.
