Lines of training
“Aprendo con Servindi” starts with the environmental and climate change axis, which begins what Servindi calls the Green Line for training.
However, the Citizenship and Politics axis (Blue line), as well as the Communication and journalism axis (Purple line) have also been proposed.
The first course, the Green Line, is built for a progressive training in three levels: basic, intermediate and advanced. The first virtual course called "Los pueblos indígenas y el desafío del cambio climático" comprises 12 modules, grouped into three levels.
The virtual education platform “Aprendo con Servindi” is supported by Norway's International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI).
It was executed within the framework of the project “Promoting Indigenous Peoples rights in REDD+ in Myanmar and Peru”.
Until the end of 2019, the strengthening workshops were held in the native communities of the departments of San Martín, Madre de Dios and Ucayali.
