Read the publication When we were sustainable. Learning from Barbanza: shaping our future from our roots
The publication When we were sustainable. Learning from Barbanza: shaping our future from our roots is the result of the first year of researh of the Barbanza Ecosocial Lab. This project focuses on a very specific region of Galicia, the Barbanza peninsula, to value the forms of land management historically carried out by local communities and to promote initiatives in the region that are governed by the same principles of sustainability. Lessons are drawn from this process to show possible approaches to economic, social and environmental issues that are relevant beyond this territory.
The publication will be free and can be downloaded from Friday, April 9 at barbanzaecosocial.org, the website of the Barbanza Ecosocial Lab.
