Projects

Jaguarapira Wildlife Reserve

Jaguarapira Wildlife Reserve

In 1994, as a master’s student in forest science, I started a project to restore the vegetation of a piece of land I eventually bought in 1998. Located near the base of a granite dome in southern Brazil, the property had originally harbored a mix of Atlantic Forest and the almost extinct Araucaria Forest, but these had been severely degraded by mining. After 22 years of restoration the forest cover is back as well wildlife.

Walden XXI

Walden XXI

Walden ou a vida nos bosques é uma autobiografia do escritor transcendentalista Henry David Thoreau. A obra é considerada, simultaneamente, como uma declaração de independência pessoal, uma experiência social, uma viagem de descoberta espiritual e um manual para a autossuficiência.

Publicado em 1854, Walden é um manifesto poético contra a civilização industrial, que então ganhava força nos Estados Unidos.

Proyecto Dipam (Project Dipam)

Proyecto Dipam (Project Dipam)

sustainable Ecovillage

"Dipam" It's a word in the Pali language that can be translated as "Island", "Refuge" or even "Nirvana". I choose this name inspired by Aldous Huxley's "Island" of 1962. My favourite book and in my opinion an excelent guide towards an permacultural and peaceful ecovillage project.

An ecovillage oriented to create a peaceful an harmonious lifestyle within nature, using modern technologies, along some peaceful techniques (meditation, Taichi, etc) and comunity life. Using modern technologies oriented oriented towards self-sustentation but mantaining a basic confort level in life.

We practise a forest-based, sustainable livelihood by combining old knowledge with the new. Our small, off-grid, sustainable community creates solutions to address current environmental and social challenges.

We are working toward invigorating an economy, so as to negate the impact of deforestation, energy consumption, climate change and current health problems. We merge our programme with community cohesion activities in order to support our health and well-being.
