Indigenous peoples matter

There are a lot of topics we know are crucial and we do not do much about it. The endangered future of indigenous people is one of them. Today, many Indigenous peoples struggle for survival in a fight they cannot win alone. Most face global warming issues, pollution, basic human rights violations, economical greed & political threats. Thus, in this struggle, indigenous people organized. Supported by local and international life-saving NGOs, important achievements are made. However, it is through deeper respect and recognition of their rights and cultures that a decent future can be achieved.

In this fight, Ocre joins forces. To value and share these incredible cultures and to support the change.

NO FUTURE WITHOUT DIVERSITY
