This episode of The Green Interview features Ecuador's Natalia Greene, a key figure in the movement for recognition of the rights of Mother Nature or "Pachamama." Greene was a central figure in the creation of Ecuador's 2008 constitution and involved in developing Ecuador's Yasuni ITT Initiative, which aimed to keep oil underground in the Amazon region. Until recently she coordinated an innovative program on political plurinationality and the rights of nature at the Fundacion Pachamama in Quito. That appointment ended abruptly when Rafael Correa's government sharply changed course, and unilaterally shut down both the Yasuni ITT Initiative and the Pachamama Foundation itself.
