We believe that video technology and geospatial data could be used as a tool for the advancement of indigenous rights and the preservation of nature
a new generation of indigenous people by providing the tools and skills to produce video content and develop geospatial maps to capture environmental change and tell first hand stories that would allow social and policy change at a local and global level. We do this through our Docu Camps program. A 12-day workshop structured through a teaching curriculum on the basics of filmmaking and GIS mapping, offered in the local language.
The Docu Camps are realized while partnering with local filmmakers (our ambassadors) and geospatial analysts who are able to offer those workshops in the local spoken language. The ultimate goal is to use video content and cartographic data as a proof of evidence to reclaim indigenous forestry lands back.
Indigenous community members who attend a Docu Camp will have the opportunity to be trained as a trainer of trainers. This will allow for a sustainable knowledge circle among the community.
To use video technology and geospatial data as a tool for the advancement of indigenous rights and the preservation of nature.
To transfer filmmaking skills to the communities who are on the frontline of the dangerous fight to protect the forests of our planet.
To ensures local ownership and empowerment as well as long-term project sustainability.
To connect indigenous communities with human rights organizations and use the video content and cartographic data as a proof of evidence in court to reclaim and protect forest territories.
Our impact in numbers so far...
