Buen Vivir (“Living Well”) is Colombia’s philosophy for a good life despite the struggles the country has been through. From a broader perspective, the phrase means learning to value yourself, value others, and of course, value and care for the environment where we live. It also means that to be able to achieve optimum well-being, one must establish harmonious relationships first with the wider community, which includes the environment, the people, the cosmos, their ancestors, and the like. Basically, the philosophy includes themes like environmental justice, land rights, economic solidarity, and the like.
