On September 29, 2021, the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste reduction will be commemorated to ensure that we all do our best to preserve food, and to respect the effort that goes into ensuring that it ends up on our tables, and to make sure that we do not take it for granted.
With only 9 years to go until 2030, we check in with the San community of Namibia, who explains to us how important a plate of food is to them, and how difficult it is to survive everyday life.
Madre tierra, así es como los pueblos definen al suelo y todo ser vivo que habita sobre ella.
Los Pueblos indígenas la cuidan y protegen desde tiempos ancestrales a diferencia de muchas empresas extranjeras que llegan a instalarse en sus territorios provocando deforestación, desvío de ríos, desplome hasta de montañas completas. Eso, sin sumar los daños físicos, psicológicos y económicos que deja una empresa extractiva a su paso.
Desde la época colonial y en todo el mundo, los Pueblos Indígenas han defendido sus tierras y territorios. A la fecha la lucha sigue siendo principalmente contra empresas extractivas que los despojan, violan sus derechos y saquean sus bienes naturales, como ocurre en Perú.

The land question can be viewed as the single most pressing issue on the socio-political agenda in South Africa. Khoi and San communities are struggling to secure their right to land and access to the land’s natural resources. In this interview, Professor Geoff Blundell, curator of The Origins Centre and researcher at the Rock Art Research Institute at the University of KwaZulu Natal, highlights the challenges the Khoi and San communities face as a result of flawed land restitution and land redistribution policies. This program is produced by Valley FM, South Africa.
The Wampanoag Peoples have lived in the region of what is now southeastern Massachusetts for more than 12,000 years. The year 2020 represents 400 years since colonizers voyaged on the Mayflower and founded Plymouth Colony as settlers on Native land. This anniversary is a time of reckoning with that history of violence, dispossession, removal. The story of Plymouth Colony cannot be told without the perspectives of Indigenous Peoples who were here as that ship arrived and who still remain.
World Tourism Day is commemorated each year on 27 September in order to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political, and economic value.
