Voices from the Plateau
Here is a brief video compilation of footage from the Tibetan Plateau, as well as a few interviews with nomadic herders. I quoted one of the interviews in a previous post regarding Cultural Erosion. I believe these interviews point to the importance of preserving traditional livelihoods, calling for a re-shaping in how we conduct development. It’s not just about making sure everyone has the comforts of an urban lifestyle, but addressing the hopes and dreams of rural people.
Note: I can’t confirm the accuracy of the translation yet as it is still in draft form.
