01 Apr / Bolivia has just stepped up as a global leader in the environmental movement. Pachamama has officially been granted rights to a healthy life!
Bolivians have long revered the Pachamama, Andean goddess of Mother Earth, and the law is said to be greatly inspired by a resurgence in the indigenous belief that the deity is central to all life. As Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera said when describing the measure, “Earth is the mother of all…the harmony [between man and nature] must be preserved as a guarantee of its regeneration.” Spiritual views aside, Bolivia’s natural resources have been threatened by environmental changes in recent years, a trend the Law of Mother Earth aims to curtail.
KEEP ME ELEVATED!
