Ecotopia 2007…in Aljezur, Portugal…

…This year Ecotopia, the European grassroots activist summer meeting will be in Aljezur in the Algarve in Portugal near to the beautiful west Atlantic coast. The theme will be migrations.
“People have always migrated in search of better economical, ecological, social living conditions.. Today, for many people migration becomes not a choice, but a necessity since the economic model we live in increases the inequalities between regions, and puts the social and environmental conditions of many people under risk.
Migration is becoming (has already become!) more and more a sensitive subject and the themes such as refugees, borders, illegality, cheap labour, rural exodus, desertification, racism and many others become more and more relevant subjects as they effect and include everyone’s daily life.”
Ecotopia will be from the 4th to the 19th August and there are still places free for anyone wishing to take part. The meeting is being organised by:
EYFA in Amsterdam and:
GAIA
– Grupo de Acção e Intervenção Ambiental
Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia
2829-516 Caparica
Portugal
There is a direct Eurolines coach to Lagos, from where there are local buses to Aljezur. For anyone interested in grassroots sustainability Ecotopia offers the opportunity to network and meet people from all over Europe who share the same ideals.
