The EcoBairro Permanent Program is an initiative born from the Instituto Roerich da Paz e Cultura do Brasil (SSA) together with the Associação Urusvati Mantenedora – Casa Urusvati (SP), and that received support from the United Nations (2005).
With the focus on sustainability that penetrates the everyday life, Ecobairro adopts the proposed 8 nucleus of sustainability for city of the future: Education, Economy, Spirituality, Health, Communication, Politics, Culture and Ecology.
The DNA of Ecobairro proposes balanced systemic actions in all the areas such that sustainability emerges as a result of that action.
Ecobairro proposes to support residents of the neighboorhood to adopt sustainability practises inside and outside their houses, using the following methodologies:
- Identify different social actors in the neighboorhood, stimulating their cooperation and sustainable practise;
- Identify, together with the community, measures to help foster sustainability practises, managing their implementation;
- Establish partnerships;
- Make the experiences public, to foster inspiration for other potential experiences;
- Time and collective agendas
- Public Power Engagement
- Include Business and companies as well as Universities
Future -> to replicate the experiment in 32 municipalities (…)
