Generations of poor families have an engrained mentality of solving problems in a resourceful, innovative way. In a world faced with climate change and decreasing resources we should learn more about the resilience of impoverished communities. A discussion facilitated by the Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development (AASD) will explore this topic and engage the collective intelligence of the Middlebury community. We want to think critically about how the AASD and Midd students can avoid paternalistic development practices and learn from the sustainability of the Andean communities.
