::We Welcome all the Guests and Members joining us at the 9th Edition of Terrafest in Italy::
In Nature there are no borders...only Niches
Many philosophical issues are closely and ecological connected with this idea of nature as cosmic breath of the earth.
From the Upanishads, the ancient texts that conclude the cycle of the Vedas, to the birth of psychoanalysis, the history of human thought is crossed by the concept of "anima mundi". It was presumably the Neo-Platonic Chalcidius, translator the Timaeus of Plato in the fourth century A.D. to solve the greek Kosmon your psyche (psyche cosmos) with the successful formula Latin "anima mundi" with which he identified the idea of a body living, permeated with the psychic essence that infuses energy in all things...Photosynthesis consumes carbon dioxide and produces oxygen. Aerobic respiration consumes oxygen and produces carbon dioxide. Both processes use electron transport chains to capture the energy necessary to drive other reactions. Every single atom of energy is conserved by changing form or moving from one type of energy to another, so waste does not exist in nature!
"Link To our people"
Sharing knowlege based skills can be an innovative way of creating a new way of communicating between people from a variety of sustainable paths that add a collaborative value to projects and a new dimension to learning. This accelerates a broad range of opportunities to come to life...Learning to support common goals and relying on relashionships increases the possibility of autonomy of processes and common success.
In response, international, regional, national and local initiatives are being developed and implemented to: limit greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere (ISO 14064 series & ISO 14065); enable organizations to establish the systems and processes necessary to improve energy performance in order to reduce GHG emissions and other related environmental impacts and energy cost through systematic management of energy (ISO 50001); and manage the organization’s environmental responsibilities in order to reduce environmental impacts and identify ways to reduce waste and energy use (ISO 14001).
"Events and volunteering"

Events with particular concern for environmental, economic and social issues. Managing your event and controling its social, economic and environmental impact. Every action counts, from relying on tap water instead of plastic bottles to encouraging use of public transport. You might find that it also helps you cut unnecessary costs. Climate change has been identified as one of the greatest challenges facing nations, governments, business and citizens over future decades. Climate change has implications for both human and natural systems and could lead to significant changes in resource use, production and economic activity.
Self-organization implies that progress is born of cooperation in the community, without the use of unsustainable grids...flowering into People circles
Our Next Step
On 22nd September 2018 we are joining the European Day of Sustainable Communities.The day celebrates the pioneering local communities across Europe who are taking action for a better, more sustainable world.
In 2017 communities in 15 European countries celebrated the day. In 2018 we want to grow the celebration! Cesnet-bioregional network is collaborating with Terrafest, a cross border walk for climate change , for PHOTOS from the event Click here
For more information please see sustainable-communities.net The main organiser of the day is ECOLISE, the European Network for Community-led Initiatives on Climate Change and Sustainability.
The 2018 European Permaculture Convergence!
will be held at Knockree Hostel, Enniskerry, County Wicklow from the 8th to 13th August 2018!
The nature of a permaculture organised event in Ireland is one of a self-organising system with a flat structure. The EUPC is being organised by the team who have been co-creating the All Ireland Permaculture Gathering since 2011
