Project Type

Rural, Community, Demonstration, Educational

Project Summary

Third Millennium Alliance is a nonprofit organization working to preserve the last remnants of Pacific Equatorial Forest in coastal Ecuador, and the wide range of endangered and endemic species therein contained.

Project Description

Third Millennium Alliance was founded in 2007 with the objective to conserve the last remnants of Pacific Equatorial Forest in coastal Ecuador, and the wide range of endangered and endemic species therein contained, and meanwhile catalyze a long-term shift in land management practices onto a sustainable course in this and other ecologically vulnerable regions throughout the tropics. Our method is a pragmatic approach that combines the establishment and management of protected areas and conservation corridors with the direct engagement of local communities through education, training and technical assistance, and sustainable economic alternatives. In the area of wildlife conservation, there is a special focus on the six different species of wild felines that inhabit coastal Ecuador, with the rare and imperiled ocelot as the flagship species. In the area of sustainable land management, agroforestry and permaculture design are the primary strategies that we practice ourselves and support on a regional scale, particularly through our Micro-Forestation program with local landholders. We consider ourselves but one arm of a larger movement that is in need of practitioners on the ground. Our field operations are based out of the Jama-Coaque Ecological Reserve, which represents one of the last major remnants of rainforest and cloud forest in coastal Ecuador.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

Member

A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
