To live with less, respecting Nature

Curious about the theme “SustainAbility & diverCity” when so much appears in the media about Climate warming, pollution, and widespread hunger looming, dozens gathered at the Casa Garden on Saturday to find out about ‘Education for Sustainable Development’ as well as a project that’s being implemented in East Timor by ‘naTerra’, a non-profit association based in Macau.

Members of the association presented and discussed in detail with the audience their field-work that embraces projects aimed at creating and sharing alternative solutions. Based on ecology and sustainability through minimum natural and indigenous resources the projects combine Permaculture design and holistic Education, while engaging directly with local communities.

Called ‘Raio de Sol’ (Sunbeam) the ‘heart-felt’ project has just completed its second phase and will be extended in East Timor until 2012, pending funding.

There were also exhibitions, including “Sustainability, Urban sights” presented by Borderless Arts Association ­ artists and art educators from several countries and areas ­ set on helping artists with various backgrounds to reach their ideals and preserve ethnic culture.

The exhibitions are open until December 19, at the Casa Garden . CJ
