Have you heard about “free knowledges exchanges”? It’s when you share what you know and you receive what you need without money. Imagine, one day you have a leak in your kitchen… You need someone who knows how to repair it; you go and ask your neighbour. He does it for nothing. Two weeks after that, this neighbour come and ask you if you know some words in English because he needs a translator. You will help him. Days after days you will help him and he will help you. You will be more than neighbours, maybe you will be friends.
This system was use a lot before, but it gradually disappears… And we want to develop it again in our region.
We will go to the Amazonian forest to discover how people who live there are doing with this subject.
Some associations are working in this topic, we don’t want to create one new. We want to see what they do and help them to develop their actions when we will come back.
After we have learnt what happened in our region, we want a new version. We want to discover another working. A functioning where people haven’t lost it since the beginning. A place where people are not using a lot the money. The best place for that is : the Amazonian forest. We will live with the Huni Kuin, indigenous people in Brazil, near to Peru. We will sleep in hammock, eat manioc and discover a real life in the forest.
Because they will help us, we need to help us too. We will finance and build with them a new maloca. This place is a knowledge place. We will do it in 15 days and use it the rest of the time. Some teachers, young researchers and simple inhabitants will be there to explain and speak with others Huni Kuin.
At the end of the month, we will come back in France and explain what we saw, what we discovered and what we lived. We will make some exhibitions, events and others project, where you will be invited if you help us. :)
