The project is constituted by the Urban Ecovillage Santa Margarida (41 families) and the Rural Ecovillage São Luiz (20 families), 2km apart from each other and connected by the Anhumas river and by the designed linear park, defining the ecovillages’ axis.
Along with the Linear Park and with Santa Margarida Ecovillage, the project predicts the insertion of the Flor do Anhumas Green Building and Sustainable Practices Institute, that has been collaborating with the project by ministering lectures and courses regarding green building and sustainable practices for employees and representatives of local government, in student conferences and in popular events, and also for the mentioned ecovillages’ members.
The main objectives that support the establishment of this Ecovillage are: I) the improvement of the lifestyle of the people concerned; II) rural sustainable development; III) the creation of new jobs, mainly in the area of the Ecovillage. The essential strategy to be pursued in the carrying out of our agenda involves the combat of the degradation of nature. The knowledge the Ecovillages will spread can be summarized by the general focus of their three dimensions: Social/Community, Ecological Cultural/Spiritual.
