Madre Kumbra – Ecovillage

Madre Kumbra: territory for meeting, understanding and sharing with yourself, the other and Nature.


CASE STAGE: Just started
LOCATION: Manizales, Caldas (Colombia)
GOVERNANCE: Not defined


Through alternative, integral and transition from rural to urban education, we propose to understand and live from a deep knowledge of who we are. We are committed to a collective transformation, generating new ways of relating and living. We practice Native Permaculture and use the Awakened Life Project as spiritual container for the collective work. We work to consolidate the relationship between the city community with other territories, to retrieve practices and knowledge from this territory, and strengthen permanent and clear collaborative networks.
