Sven Uhlås

My passion for nature and my commitment to localy led development matured when I lived more than a year close to nature with the indigenous people of the Andes in South America. I became convinced that it is possible to integrate environmental issues and people, providing their material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Natural resource management and bio-regional community relationships were and are for me two important areas to master in order to maintain a sustainable and equal future for all.

I have been leading several localy ledd development projects in different continents during my career. I am currently staying in Sweden. I and my wife have developed a business with focos on nature conservation and sustainable natural resource management. We have trained hundreds of people on how they can sustain themselves and the community with low carbon impact methods and taking care of the biodiversity.

I am looking forward for new challenges and new ideas of collaborations.
