The Fronteiras Institute supports remembering processes, which can increase the peoples’ and communities’ abilities to actively generate bottom-up transformations and, at the same time, ones that are effective for socio-environmental regeneration.
We work by relativizing frontiers that limit dreams and perpetuate degenerative institutional patterns in order to foster frontiers that have launched transformative trajectories.
The program strives to create solutions to the conflicts over land allocation in a context of expanding agricultural and road infrastructure frontiers, as well as gaps and overlaps among the different categories of land tenure in the Amazon.
Currently, we are witnessing the expansion of the frontiers of degradation, deforestation and death over the Amazon. Within this context, our work is required to confront this expansion of human frontiers while eliminating obstacles to the expansion of local frontiers that protect social diversity.
We live and work in the social diversity center of the world and its socioeconomic peripheries. In the center — the dense Amazonian forests of the Juruá Basin, with its multiple peoples, languages and cultures. On the periphery — some of the territories with the lowest Human Development Index scores in the Amazon.
