What is ecotourism? Is this kind of tourism in Bolivia? Why? Who gets involved in ecotourism? How important is it to be responsible with nature and small communities?

These were some of the innumerable questions we wanted to answer with this special edition of the cocha-banner.

The main objective of the cocha-banner is to promote different types of social work and happenings in Cochabamba or Bolivia in general, many of which the people of Cochabamba and visitors are unaware of. It is geared to help organizations, foundations and other groups spread the word of the work they do.

Cocha-banner is distributed for free within the city and covers a variety of topics from news and current affairs to features and reviews.

If you would like to present an article to publish in the cocha-banner or have any comments please send it to our email address:

Cocha-banner is sponsored by: Projects Abroad an international development organisation.
