Peter Hartmann

Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1996
This description of Peter Hartmann's work was prepared when Peter Hartmann was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
Peter Hartmann is working to transform a slogan, or label, which communities in southern Chile have used to attract tourism and businesses to their localities, into an effective instrument for encouraging public participation in decision-making on environment-related issues and stimulating sound environmental policies. He envisages the development of a "certification process" that will limit the use of the label, "Life Reserve," to communities that meet a rigorous set of standards in their environment-related policies and practices.
