ILP Montseny

12 September - 26 September

EL MONTSENY NO TÉ PREU: DEFENSEM-LO. L'any 2016 el Pla Especial de protecció del Montseny aprovat l'any 2008 va ser anul·lat per una sentència del Tribunal Suprem, retornant la situació legal de l'any 1977. A dia d'avui els valors medioambientals del massís i la seva contribució al manteniment d'unes condicions de vida sostenibles, estan en perill. Per això necessitem una llei per protegir el Montseny! Una ILP és una iniciativa legislativa popular, un instrument de democràcia directa fonamentada en el…

The Practice of Living & Dying Retreat – Retiro La Práctica de Vivir y Morir

22 September - 27 September

En este retiro nos haremos un par de preguntas inseparables: - ¿Cómo vivir, para poder abrazar plenamente nuestra muerte? - ¿Cómo aceptar nuestra muerte, para poder abrazar por completo nuestra vida? A medida que nuestra cultura moderna se ha vuelto cada vez más sofisticada, también nos hemos divorciado cada vez más de nuestro entorno natural y de la sabiduría ancestral acerca de la vida y la muerte. Hemos alejado la Muerte de la Vida, la muerte lejos de los vivos…

O papel Regenerativo das Comunidades locais para um futuro Sustentável

28 September @ 18:30 - 20:00 UTC+0

A pandemia Covid-19 demonstrou a importância do papel que as comunidades as iniciativas cidadãs, e a sociedade civil tiveram na busca de soluções face ás adversidades do presente; mas também, como rapidamente estas comunidades puderam mobilizar-se a si próprias e partilhar responsabilidades a nível local.
