CBC, Centro Bartolomé de las Casas from Cusco

Centro Bartolomé de Las Casas (CBC) was founded in 1974 on the initiative of four French religious of the Dominican Order. The organization is committed to intercultural, ecumenical and social dialogue, promoting understanding of the rural Andean world and the Amazon, and advocating for various marginalized indigenous peoples and their way of life and spirituality. The CBC's activities include projects in the areas of research, education, ecotourism, creation of new value chains for organic vegetables, as well as climate change, biodiversity, water and soil resource management. The CBC focuses on new knowledge transfer and works on the social valorization of the traditional indigenous way of life and spirituality of the South Andes macroregion of Peru, in which it also specifically tries to incorporate the Andean understanding of "Buen vivir" into its activities and thinking. The project activities co-financed by Mission 21 are the "Andean School" and the "Network for Water, Soils and Agroecological Cultivation Practices", both multi-stakeholder initiatives that provide opportunities to share best practices and improve knowledge on both sides, i.e. rural and smallholder village communities as well as public and non-profit organizations and the academy. The "Andean School" focuses more on concrete field activities in smallholder communities, while the other initiative is more about systematization, engaging in dialogue, and disseminating knowledge.
