“Live the forest” or “Vivamos el Bosque” is a youth driven initiative that aims to reach out to people and involve them in the conservation of the Otonga Cloud Forest in Ecuador by engaging them on a dialogue and cutting-edge non-formal educational activities. The project started as part of the “Engage in Conservation” project coached by D&F Academy and The Jane Goodall Institute.
We want to create a strong community of children/youth from rural and urban areas of Ecuador who is empowered to live sustainably and to take action in the protection of the Otonga Cloud Forest. Vivamos el bosque believes in sustainability! and for us ¨sustainability is about protecting our options” (Bernard, 2012)
