Call of the Earth Llamado de la Tierra seeks to provide indigenous peoples with a forum for dialogue on intellectual property policy that will result in a more substantive and meaningful participation of indigenous peoples in the international policy arena and enhance indigenous peoples ability to strategically influence conceptual approaches, policies and practices in intellectual property policy development.

The objectives of Call of the Earth Llamado de la Tierra are:

  1. To re-conceptualize the debate surrounding indigenous intellectual property rights;
  2. To enhance strategic participation of indigenous peoples;
  3. To build a common knowledge base and capacity to respond to external pressures and develop political direction and strategies;
  4. To make debate relevant to, and informed by, communities and community experiences.
