Knowledge Keepers are the living guardians of the Traditional Knowledge systems embedded in the cultural traditions of regional, local and indigenous communities and expressed in culture, agricultural practices, legends, folklore, rituals, songs, laws. They include herders, farmers, breeders, master cheesemakers that are connected with the traditional knowledge of a territory.
PROTECT YOUR TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE AND TRANSFER IT TO NEW GENERATIONS.
