The Good Living policy in #Ecuador

The first thing to say is that the concept of ‘Good Living’ or Sumak Kawsay (in the Quechua language) arises out of the political struggles of the people. This is important to emphasise because generally proposals come from intellectuals, academics, the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean for example, but this concept comes from people’s traditions and is now enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Ecuador. Clearly it represents a fusion between a Western outlook, from an Aristotelian perspective, which merges with an indigenous perspective, the Sumak Kawsay (‘Good Living’). Ecuador is not Bolivia. Ecuador does not have such a large indigenous population, it contains a larger mestizo population, but it coexists within a plurinational state, which contains about 14 indigenous communities. We believe that the world does not need development alternatives but alternatives to development. It is necessary to create a completely different world.

Ecuador Rebrands Itself As The Home Of Internet Freedom

Ecuador Rebrands Itself As The Home Of Internet Freedom | ECUADOR | Scoop.it

The FLOK Society gets funding from the Ecuadorian government and grew out of speeches Correa had made calling for a “social knowledge economy,” according to Michel Bauwens, a founder of the P2P Foundation hired to work on the FLOK project for Ecuador. According to an interview given by Daniel Vazquez, a Spanish “hacktivist” and one of FLOK’s directors, the idea also springs from Ecuador’s five-year “Plan of Good Living” introduced in 2009.
