Indigenous Sustainability

Indigenous sustainability is based upon the premise that the indigenous people of the world have successfully tended forests, jungles, plains and seas for thousands of years. In our industrial and technological world we have lost many sustainable practices that could help us change the world. They can be rediscovered by listening to indigenous people who are still alive today.

Actionwork are touring 'Indigenous Sustainability' or 'IS' to schools throughout 2024. IS is both a show and a workshop that takes students on a journey to the Malaysian rainforest where we meet the Temiar people. The Temiar are an indigenous community who live in the jungles of Malaysia and have ancestral lands dating back thousands of years.

In the IS show/workshop sessions we explore deforestation, climate change, energy crisis, scorched earth, eco-practices, sustainable living, nurturing nature and how we can make a difference in this ever changing world.

Students will get to meet and interact with someone who actually grew up with the Temiar people in the jungle.
