In 2012, with a blackboard under one arm, we set off on a journey around Peru to find people living in harmony with nature. We asked the people we encountered to write a message on the blackboard, to give a piece of advice for a better life. Soon we realized that we had opened the door to a new form of interaction. We called it Kuyapanakuy. In Quechua, it means reciprocation, or mutual caring.
In 2013, we continued on this route, on the search for – and constructing – a Natural Peru.

We seek to promote a cultural movement to make people live more sustainably and closer to nature. There are many ways to support our campaign and the people behind these initiatives.
