Barefoot Philosophers

After the consultation on bio-cultural community protocols, Holly Shrumm and Harry Jonas (Natural Justice) were hosted by Piyasoma Bentota and Upali Rajapakse in Gurugoda, Sri Lanka, at the Rush and Reed Conservation and Diversification Programme. The programme supports women from local communities to make woven items such as bags and mats as a means to generate livelihoods and conserve the local wetlands. Bentota and Upali have dedicated their entire lives to social and environmental justice and continue to support communities’ sustainable livelihoods through cultural revitalization and organic agriculture. Holly and Harry are very grateful to them for their generous hospitality and inspiring words.
