Asociación Sukû artisan Silvia Queta at R+20 Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio this week!
Asociación Sukû artisan Silvia Queta traveled with other Cofán community members to attend the UN Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this week. We are very excited that they were invited to attend this awaited event. I spoke with Silvia and her husband Fidel Aguinda president of AJONCE, the Cofán Youth organization, who traveled by road from Ecuador via Perú, Bolivia and other countries. It is the first time for Silvia to leave her community to be a part of such an important event. We look forward to news from Silvia and we are optimistic that it will be a driver for sustainable action across the globe, starting in Brazil and beyond!
