The TJD Amer­i­c­aS con­fer­ence is the first of a series of con­ti­nen­tal events. All of those con­fer­ences will call to lis­ten first to the cit­i­zens before push­ing them to engage in the glob­al quest for sus­tain­abil­i­ty. Each con­fer­ence offers a plat­form where cit­i­zens from dif­fer­ent parts of the world and of dif­fer­ent cul­tures can express their under­stand­ing of sustainability.

The Jena Dec­la­ra­tion (TJD) calls for a dou­ble shift of par­a­digm of the so far dom­i­nant sus­tain­abil­i­ty poli­cies. Endorsed by found­ing part­ners like The Club of Rome, the World Acad­e­my of Art and Sci­ence, the Inter­na­tion­al Coun­cil of the human Sci­ences, and many oth­ers, it is call­ing first to change pri­or­i­ty from a top-down to a bot­tom-up strat­e­gy, sup­port­ing actions from the ground. And sec­ond­ly from a nature to soci­ety kind of argu­ment towards cul­ture-nature log­ic. This change of par­a­digm implies the claim to take the cul­tur­al rich­ness and spe­cif­ic region­al con­di­tions as the main ori­en­ta­tion for roads of human­i­ty to glob­al sustainability. 

In the present TJD Amer­i­c­aS con­fer­ence of the 9th of Novem­ber voic­es from the Patag­on­ian Mapuche Cul­ture, a wom­en’s empow­er­ment move­ment in the Caribbean, par­tic­i­pants in the Colom­bian peace build­ing process, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of indige­nous reli­gion and cul­ture, an action group for clean water for all and artists for sus­tain­abil­i­ty from Broad­way in New York will explore new dimen­sions of sustainability.
