Earth Up Eco Tours and Spotlight Performances
Breathe: A Story Eco Tour: Travel to Brazil’s amazing biomes with Brazilian storyteller Fabio Lisboa (and the traditional voices through him). From Indigenous peoples’ myths and ancient way of life to contemporary ecotales and organic farming, we will seek at the sunset, through the night and at the dawn of a new day, to know Curupira and other guardians of the forest. Let us help ourselves to breathe fresh air again and let our Mother Nature breathe in us.
