It was decided that a new remit was needed for the Trust. As a small charity we should no longer be engaged in land purchase; other, deeper pockets have been very active. We decided to work alongside others with the same objective.
Jean-Paul Mertinez, our Chairman and Trustees Felicity Nock and Graham Townsley discussed the new remit with the Kogi Mamas themselves in Colombia during the summer. The Kogi asked us to continue our work to make the world more aware of their message and understand it, as the planet is in crisis. It was suggested that as many trustees came from a media background, we had the skills and expertise to concentrate on communication rather than land purchase. Therefore, we could assist the Mamas in spreading their message concerning the health of the environment which was a natural follow on to the 2 films Alan Ereira had made with them.
