JIWI — The true importance of certified wood. / Sustainable forest management

JIWI means wood and forest in the native Shipibo-Conibo language. The project is fruit of Sep Verboom’s stay in the Peruvian Amazon, where the designer collaborated with AIDER and Flemish NGO Bos+ on the theme of certified wood. Raising awareness is crucial concern, both in Peru and all around the world.

JIWI connects the isolated world of the Peruvian Amazon to a global audience. It supports local communities and stimulates a local workshop in Pucallpa. It aspires to protect the forest by making this sensitive issue more transparent and accessible to a wider public.
