“And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:12
By Catherine Austin Fitts
This Thursday, I will be speaking with Macaco Tamarice, a musician and member of the Damanhur ecovillage in northern Italy. I had the opportunity to meet Macaco last year at a conference in Switzerland – she is a gifted person and a wonderful communicator. Since late 2010, Macaco has served as President of the European chapter of GEN – the Global Ecovillage Network.
Macaco will be speaking to us from her home in Damanhur. Founded in 1975, Damanhur has approximately 1,000 citizens and extends over 500 hectares of territory throughout Valchiusella and the Alto Canavese area, at the foothills of the Piedmont Alps.
(15 Nov 11)
Ecovillages are popping up everywhere, fueled by a growing number of people looking for ways to find a civilized, peaceful and environmentally sane way of living and working with each other.
Macao and I will cover the basics:
- What are Ecovillages? Why are they growing?
- What kinds of Ecovillages have been successful?
- Who does well living in Ecovillages?
- Why did Macaco join an Ecovillage?
- How do I learn about Ecovillages?
- Should I join one or start one?
- What’s next for Damanhur and GEN?
I will start with Money and Markets and Ask Catherine. As Macaco will be in Italy, I will record our interview on Thursday am, so please post your questions for her on the blog by Wednesday evening.
Talk to you Thursday!
