In order to implement economies of well-being for life and the planet, societies, sectors, CSOs, territories and governments must start from a social and political dialogue.

In the framework of Stockholm and the Escazu Agreement, we propose that development processes must be endogenous, from the cosmovision and imaginary life of the peoples, their public policies must be based on the true care of their ecosystems and without taking away the access of indigenous populations to their environmental niches that they have historically preserved.

For a true sustainable development, financing is urgent, allocating funds to achieve the objectives foreseen for human wellbeing and at the same time it is necessary that the states mobilize internal resources giving priority to the population, to the territory, making good use of the resources of the territory and that it returns to the wellbeing of its inhabitants.

The group of alternative transforming economies is located in the field of proposals, it is a critique of the dominant model, it is a critique of the current development model. The transforming economies require imagination, will, people receive them with great pleasure and the dreams of caring for the planet are added to it, as well as the recognition of ancestral knowledge. Transformative economies are centered on the search for the dignity of people and the care of Nature.

Faced with the question of how to make transformative economies effective? We propose that they start from the communities and their relationships, they are built with the people, because they are not individualistic economies.

The challenge is to change the culture in relation to the economy and there governments have something to do, there are no human rights, environmental rights, development rights, if there are no rights seen as an emancipatory and vindicating horizon, that can become a reality, if there are no social movements that can make them a reality to live in peace with the planet while maintaining the integrity of the environment.

1-From Latin America we demand change in the productive matrix considering the challenges imposed on us by the sustainability of life and the planet.

2-Deep transformations in the economy from a feminist perspective.

3-Rights of nature and climate justice for a sustainable future.

4-Food security and food sovereignty as collective rights.

5-We propose transformative economic alternatives linked to the knowledge of the peoples of Latin America and their historical project by expanding the implementation of Transformative Economies such as:

Coins, Barter, Fair Trade, Responsible Consumption, Social Solidarity Economy, Ecological, Environmental Economy and stands out as part of the Feminist Economy, the Economy of Care since introducing the lens of care becomes something absolutely different care with people and care with nature among others.
