  • Description

    Description

    Come and help our dreams come true. We work with sustainable development also as a professor for Brazilian Government, integrating the dimensions of ecological, social, cultural, environmental and economic sustainability. Our all activities focus on the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals Agenda 2030, the SDGs.

    After travel around the world, I recognised my responsibilities with the inequalities of my compatriots. Then, we have concentrated our energy to work with education, not only formal, as a professor, but also with complementary activities to school.

    I love walking in the forest, bicycling, music, concerts, cafés , meeting friends, and I am luck to have reencountered my childhood friends and other worldwide friends.

    My plan is to set up a diversity, multigenerational community in South America (Santo Antonio de Jesus, state of Bahia) and looking for some help. We would like to build a tree house. We offer some opportunities in Santo Antonio de Jesus, Bahia state, where we develop the land regeneration, environmental education, focusing on future generations . Currently, we need to record a video about the projetc, work in our annual report, that can be done in Petrolina, Pernambuco State on the border of Bahia. As a perk, we may offer some days in Salvador da Bahia, the first Brazilian capital city. It depends on which directions you are heading, travelling in Brazil.

    I belong to Servas and other organizations. I still work as a professor in Petrolina, Pernambuco state and have a demanding work routine, which makes me travel regularly.
    I want to build an eco community and have nice people around.

    We are a family, and I am a professor at the University, have traveled abroad extensively and have friends around the world. We need help around the house and will be glad to exchange languages lessons.
