Sustainability and rural development

Do you want to learn and participate in local environmental and rural development initiatives in the so-called empty Spain?
This is the project for you!

Take part in social initiatives that value rural life

With this project you will get to know projects and social initiatives in Spain. You will be able to see first hand how we can take inspiration from the rural people in order to find answers to global challenges. You will be able to carry out alternative activities such as a vegetable garden. At the same time you will learn about the responsible use of water resources, as a collective good that it is, and what food sovereignty means. You will also be able to participate in a bioconstruction workshop in which you will learn about the use of local materials and low environmental impact.
