The study Dialogues of several worlds was oriented to document and systematize the initiatives of AFE Foundations with indigenous peoples of La Guajira, Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, Valle del Cauca and Cauca, to present a characterization of each of their projects, accompanied by good practices, lessons learned and achievements and difficulties experienced in the management of these initiatives.
The study, carried out in 2014 – 2015, was promoted, accompanied and financed by the Foundations Alpina, Antonio Restrepo Barco, Celsia, Mayagüez, Grupo Familia, Propal, Promigas and Sistema de Fundaciones el Cerrejón.
In the research, for which collective exercises were carried out between the foundations in each region, semi-structured interviews and a systematization workshop, The AFE Foundations and the Wayúu, Arhuaco, Embera-Chamí, Nasa and Kokonuko peoples participated, as well as the experts of the Capacitar Foundation, who led the work.
To advance it, an appreciative approach was implemented, rescuing the best that each corporate foundation has to contribute in the collective reflection and to enrich the shared dialogue and learning.
From the process of systematization and analysis of the experiences studied, their successes and difficulties, a set of learning and best practices emerged that are worth to highlight and which are summarized in this publication.
The learning and best practices have been organized for presentation on topics such as participation and appropriation, relevance, relationship, capacity building, articulation with public institutions, management of alliances, knowledge management and sustainability.
