John Jairo Uribe Sarmiento, professor and researcher at Universidad de Ibagué, explains what it means to build peace “from the bottom up”, he talks about those who have dedicated themselves to building peace in the territories in this way, and how their work has impacted the communities and power dynamics. Professor Uribe suggests the need to redeem such initiatives and always make room for them in the media, and political, economic, and social scenarios, but more forcefully in these times of pandemic.
