The Fountain’s mission is to restore an economic model that is based on reciprocity and collaboration and guided by Nature and the Sacred.


2. What is the most environmentally/socially impactful practice your NGO has implemented?

Imagine a global economic system truly aligned with the care for the earth and the whole of life for the benefit of current and future generations, guided by the ancestral wisdom and technologies of cultures that have lived this way for the larger course of human history. This is the work of The Fountain.


3. Please share any new projects you will be implementing in the near future.

Sacred Territories Initiative—Indigenous-led conservation initiative to protect and restore bio-cultural regions vital to a healthy climate and reciprocity with Mother Earth. Indigenous territories contain 80% of earth’s biodiversity; 95% of the earth’s most threatened diversity; 25% world’s land surface (66% of that land is essentially natural; 36% remaining intact forest; and 77% world’s forest carbon. Indigenous peoples maintain some of the earth’s healthiest ecosystems, proving to be the best guardians of territories essential to the security of global food production, fresh water and a stable climate, critical to the health of the planet as a whole. Our initiative is promoting intercultural exchange with the goal of re-connection, re-indigenization, and remembering who we are. In these ways we can preserve the root cultures, original languages, customs, ceremony and teachings through education, intercultural partnership and collaboration. Following the direction of the 4 Original Peoples of Colombia, we are constructing 13 Houses of Original Thought and organizing the Pagamentos pilgrimages to activate and restore sacred sites globally. Investors, philanthropists, leading economic thinkers and holders of indigenous ecological knowledge who are in service to the earth and future generations are gathering. It is time to stand unified with Mother Earth. Her time is now!!!


4. What is the most positive action your country has taken to impact its environment or social well-being?

Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter.
