    Our aim is to promote and live with the Topics

    We are creating an ecological intercultural space in Alcaucín

    » is to create a free, peaceful hub for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, culture or religion in an energetically ideal place in Andalusia

    » to build up an alternative, generation-spanning model in which we can learn from and with each other. We want to give opportunities to be creative together – in a holistic, innovative, sustainable and altruistic manner

    » We aim to give impulses for a responsible, personal, social, ecological and technological development

    » and find harmonic balance between economic aspects, ideals and spiritual goals

    » The final project is planned to be used from ca. 180 people. The ecological space, accommodation and infrastructure will be prepared for well-being, activities, lifelong learning and creative projects

    » young and old can enjoy sense gardens and natural parks

    » Who wants can be involved in the cultivation of fruits, vegetables, herbals and healing plants from around the world

    » The water retention make it possible to find ponds and green natural spaces


    » The eco-architectural arrangement will integrate in the natural environment without disturbances of the rural conditions

    » Our team practices and teaches ecological agriculture and permaculture design

    » The focus is on recycling, sustainable energy and closed, natural cycles.

    We develop ourselves to support positive, innovative and altruistic behavior - alone and together on the way to mindful awareness and happiness

    Activities where you can help could be:

    Also we plan to build geodesic domes - multifunctional greenhouses and have planning and building work.

    On the other hand we started to do seminars and cultural events as well as organizing for the future project.
