Showcasing Rainforest Regeneration/Conservation, Permaculture, Community Experiences and Electric Power Decentralisation. Workshops offered!

About this event

Regenerative living event is about how to live a regenerative life for yourself, within your community, city or even inside the forest, always in harmony with nature.

Regenerative Living Event that aims to create support and awareness concerning (1) the challenges of protecting what is left of the Atlantic Rainforests in Brazil and other natural environments (2) learn how permaculture is possible in Switzerland and Brazil from real cases, and (3) understand how the community is a real power underneath all the regenerative transformation.

We will revise implemented examples of permaculture in Switzerland and in Brazil, and we will learn why permaculture is as much a social change as it is an environmental tool. We will also see how communities can regain power over their electric power supply with cases all over the world and what it means to live in a community right here in Switzerland or in the middle of a forest from people doing just that.

With a spotlight on the Brazilian Case illustrated by the example of Terra Luminous Institute and permaculture experiences in Switzerland and more, we will open a discussion with you on what it means to live in harmony between people and the planet.

The even counts with presentations in two blocks, a film screening followed by 3 workshops:

Morning Theme: Environmental Conservation/Regeneration& Permaculture, including discussions on Regenerative Farming, Biodiversity and Sustainable Land Use. Presentation followed by a discussion panel.

Afternoon Theme: Regenerative Communities, including Ecovillages, communities for impact in remote and urban areas plus energy decentralisation and the power from and for communities. Presentation followed by a discussion panel.

Film Screening: We The Power, showcasing examples all over the world about bringing the power from the grid back to communities. The screening will be commented by Patagonia Enviro Marketing Operations Coordinator in Switzerland.

Three fantastic workshops you can join. 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Did you know?
