The Latin American peasant movement part of the Latin American Coordination of Countryside Organizations (CLOC-Via Campesina) has been developing a capacity building proposal on agroecology as a political and technical space through its IALA network (Latin American Agroecological Institutes) located in Paraguay, Venezuela, Brazil and Chile.
In Chile, this is an institute coordinated by the National Association of Rural and Indigenous Women (ANAMURI) and therefore it focuses on rural women.
Viviana was interviewed by Sara Pont, Real World Radio and Future Earth´s correspondent at the Seminar that gathered over a hundred delegates at Los Lagos University, Santiago.
The interview was also taken as an opportunity to assess the seminar, where rural educators, fisherfolk and peasants exchanged experiences about one of the central axis of the building of the rural social movement.
Viviana highlighted the efforts of her organization for starting a debate "although we feel that we lacked the participation of different government sectors which are closely linked to the peasant world through its public policies. We regret the fact that they couldn’t be here to listen to continental experiences and enrich their view towards a new kind of education for the peoples of the countryside".
"We were strengthened as an organization and as a growing IALA. These elements enrich our proposals to continue contributing to the debate around rural education in the framework of Food Sovereignty, which for many is still an invisible flag", said Viviana Catrileo.
