Description

The Misak ‘Life Plan’ – An indigenous approach to community visioning and planning

Tuesday 8th May, 6pm, The Fleming Room, Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh

Mark Ruskell MSP invites you to this unique opportunity to meet with community leaders from the indigenous Misak people of Colombia, as they tour Scotland to share their experiences of long-term community visioning and planning, and learn about Scotland’s journey towards land reform and community empowerment.

Throughout April and May, Misak leaders Jeremias Tunubala and Liliana Muelas will be visiting communities in Govan, Mull, Eigg, Skye and Bute to share their experience of the ‘Life Plan’ – a unique approach developed by the Misak people to help re-envision and take control of their futures. Through this approach the Misak people have successfully reclaimed their land, their futures and their culture against all odds. This event in Holyrood will mark the end of their trip to Scotland, and they will reflect on the synergies between their indigenous approach and the growing community empowerment and land reform movements in Scotland.

The event and tour are organised by LifeMosaic, a Scottish-based charity which works with indigenous peoples around the world to help build the capacity of communities and movements to protect their rights, cultures and territories and to determine their own futures in this rapidly changing world. They produce videos and toolkits for empowerment and critical education, train community organisers and indigenous youth, and support indigenous partner organisations to develop their movement building capacity.
