Human Rights and Sustainability in Brazil
It feels as though just yesterday I was on a plane headed to San Paolo. Looking back I am very grateful for the experience and knowledge I’ve gained and feel very privileged to have been a part of such an amazing experience with the best group of people.
Amongst the many situations and encounters I experienced during this trip, I’ve learned the most from meeting the Ministerio publico and the BRT system’s representatives. In addition, I found the indigenous people’s sustainable lifestyle very enlightening and I was able to learn a lot by observing them. I try to incorporate what I’ve learned from this trip into my life today. What I’ve found most challenging is the difficulty of replicating their sustainable lifestyle back in the United States. Life here is much more consumer driven and as a result much harder to stay both competitive and sustainable.
