Drawing on permaculture principles and using a holistic approach, IDDS Amazon participants worked to deepen connections between each of the summit projects in support of community engagement and continuity. The team conducted a community needs inventory, a waste management system, a conservation strategy, and community advocacy tools such as a politician’s letter. This set of tools will empower the community to addressing issues important to them, including healthcare, waste management, community agriculture, education, and transportation.
