Description of Project:
The registered association “Associação Aldeia Ecológica EarthYou”, offers its members and partners the opportunity to create a new future together which is worth living, and to steer life back into the cycles of nature within this ecological project!
The highest goal is to develop a self-sustaining community, which strives to produce all consumer goods with ecologically sustainable methods, through own work or regional exchange. Self-sufficiency with vegetables and
fruits is a key-part in this matter.
Each resident can build his own house within the community, a healthy space for a free development and self-fulfillment. These houses will be built of biodegradable resources, without harming nature and the whole infrastructure will be brought in a natural cycle.
We intend to establish a community in which all generations live together. Every resident, regardless of age, has a place here and provides a contribution within their expertise. Social tasks like child- and elderly care shall be taken in our own hands and integrated into all daily activities. The community work will be organized in a self-determined way and divided through the residents based on competences and interests.
