Zero Waste Society

How do you imagine our the future society?

It is a society that values ​​the resources provided by natural systems and integrates all materials into cyclical processes, without toxic materials or products that are left unused.

A society aware of what it gets from nature and that respects the environment and people. That promotes a dignified life for all, stimulating the well-being and growth of people and democratic and equitable ways. A society that prioritizes personal relationships, in an open and supportive way.

We explain the projects that give meaning to this projection.
