"This land is ours, we must make sure it is not destroyed." By combining traditional knowledge and new technologies, the Acre State Training Program of the Forest Indigenous Agents looks to protect and effectively manage natural resources. The program stresses collaboration, using the "living archives" of elders and community knowledge to find the best methods for managing species and growing crops. Producing their own educational materials and implementing creative initiatives, these Indigenous Agents are trying to reverse the environmental damage that has come about through overuse and pollution.
