A community that learns from its past is cultivating its capacity at the same time for innovation in the future. We support local communities to document their traditional knowledge, local knowledge, and the local meaning of sustainable living. We facilitate communities to learn about and to reflect on the core values of their local knowledge and to revive and build mechanisms of knowledge innovation, sharing and transmission.
- We support communities to nurture the younger generation’s sense of belonging and responsibility by conducting community-based research on traditional culture, including local history, biodiversity conservation, and environmental issues.
- We support communities’ efforts to revive traditional culture, rebuild traditional mutual help organisations, and strengthen social ties for community cohesion.
