The Blueprint project is an integrated response system especially applicable in emergency situations. The model includes permaculture practices, solar and biogas energy usage, natural building methods and water harvesting structures. We only offer what we use ourselves – for this ecovillages serve as models or testfields to showcase how various practices can be integrated in a holistic offering to make aid sustainable. Crisis becomes an opportunity to reintegrate water systems with food systems and restore the landscape through meeting the immediate needs. Responsibility is the ability to respond.
The Blueprint initiative is in memory of Paulo Mellet, who was an activist as well as a visionary. He travelled from one crisis area to the other offering his expertise and aid. Here you can read more about the meeting, get to know more closely the experts who participated, witness five types of Biogas digesters in Tamera presented by T.H.Culhane, or take a closer look at strawbale building by Bee Rowan and the experimental time she held in Tamera.
