Description
In 2006, a group of young Bolivian environmental engineers decided to create an institution that would respond to the big environmental challenges in the country. This institution would allow the members to unleash their passions, imagination, and technical skills in order to improve Bolivia’s people and their environment. Thus, in the 2006 Earth Day, the environmental non-profit foundation GaiaPacha was created.The Greek term Gaia evokes the Lovelock’s theory that indicates Earth is alive. In the same complementary way, the term Pacha; that comes from native languages such as Quechua and Aymara; is part of the more complete term Pachamama. Pachamama means “Mother Earth”. In consequence, Gaia Pacha is a combination of modern theory and a legacy of ancient wisdom that expresses pretty much the same. That our Mother Earth is alive explained by two different cosmo-visions which complement perfectly each other.
General Information
Today, the foundation is functioning with more than 13 active members, and training 4 inactive members who are studying abroad pursuing their master degrees. Gaia Pacha’s main office is located in the city of Cochabamba, but since 2012, the foundation started its activities in the lowlands of the Santa Cruz Bolivian department.
