The annual Sustainability School convened by Friends of the Earth Latin America and the Caribbean (ATALC) provides space for a new form of learning and information exchange in Latin America and the Caribbean. Now in its third year, it is also forging strong new links between member groups, and with allies in the region.
strengthening our strategic alliances
Strengthening our strategic alliances has become our most effective strategy for mobilizing people in support of a just and sustainable world.
a strong foei
Building a strong network has been a key focus of FoEI's strategic plan from the start. FoEI is committed to implementing our vision of how we work together as well as achieving our vision of the world. Investing in the development of FoEI as an organization is as important to the federation as engaging in specific campaign activities.
the communications integration team
At the end of 2008, FoEI's Honduras Biennial General Meeting (BGM) agreed that the federation needed a communications strategy, and a team to ensure its implementation. A main focus in 2009 was the drafting of this strategy, with input from international program coordinators, national communicators, regional meetings, and FoEI's Executive Committee. This draft communications strategy is slated for adoption at the 2010 BGM.
program integration team
At the end of 2008, FoEI's Honduras Biannual General Meeting (BGM) mandated the Program Integration Team (PIT) to take responsibility for the progress and development of FoEI’s programs and campaigns, to ensure political coherence between them, and alignment with FoEI’s strategic plan.

community testimonies
Across the world, communities are affected by the pressing environmental problems of our day. All too often, it's big business, governments, and even large NGOs that have the loudest voices. The communities who have to live with the consequences of these environmental issues can struggle to get their opinions heard.
voices of the south speak out on climate justice
During Friends of the Earth International’s BGM in Swaziland in 2007, concerns about the need to communicate the issue of climate change more effectively were discussed. Friends of the Earth Latin America (ATALC) decided to create a book about climate change and climate justice, from the Latin American perspective. FoE Chile volunteered to fund and coordinate the project. Final decisions about the content and the structure of the book were taken together with the Movement of Victims Affected by Climate Change (MOVIAC) at ATALC’s regional assembly in El Salvador, in June 2009.
