Autonomy - Ecology
Facing climate change, widespread hunger and the destruction of the Earth's ecosystems, we urgently need viable ecological solutions and alternatives in order to survive. These solutions must be tested and optimized before they can be applied on a large scale. We will need to make fundamental changes in the way we think and act in our contact with nature: humans must reintegrate into the ecological cycles. We are working on cooperation and contact instead of exploitation; for open, holistic, decentral systems instead of central control and for diverse biotopes instead of mono-cultures.
The focus of the ecological work in the emerging healing biotope of Tamera is on building the Water Retention Landscape as a far-reaching approach to healing the land. Through this approach to water management we create a regenerative basis for autonomous water supply, for the production of healthy food, the regeneration of topsoil, pasture and forest, and greater diversity of species. The new cultural impulse which is starting to emerge could enable many people to return to the countryside or to create urban ecosystems in the cities.
The practical work on the Water Retention Landscape in Tamera covers 5 main areas:
The Global Ecology Institute has been established in Tamera to create a global network around this new ecological-cultural impulse. The Institute organizes courses, professional training and congresses for ecological world aid as well as providing consultation to projects in our region and worldwide.
The ecology team cooperates closely with Terra Deva, our department for spiritual ecology, deep ecology and communication with nature beings.
We offer various opportunities over the year for education in these areas, as well as possibilities to join our practical work.
