New Guinea is a practical expression of our belief that human activity can be integrated into the natural environment and become a regenerative factor for local communities and the ecosystems that surround them. This project was created to seek and study healthy and meaningful connections with nature and the people around us, with the aim of creating a new culture with local characteristics based on solidarity and respect for life as a whole. Our activities aim to develop tools and practices that promote self-reliance and resilience at an individual or collective level, while supporting people and communities in their transition to a sustainable and balanced way of life, in the face of the multiple systemic crises that are intensifying around us. In detail, we are active in the following themes:
Our educational activities aim to support participants to redefine their basic daily needs and seek new ecological and sustainable ways to meet them. Through practical and theoretical workshops, participants have the opportunity to become familiar with different methods and techniques and to become actively involved in design, production and manufacturing processes, deepening their understanding of the respective subject. Our educational activities include courses and multi-day seminars for adults and shorter workshops for children.
Our actions focus on raising awareness about contemporary social and ecological issues and highlighting the need to redefine basic needs and redesign everyday life in order to transition to a more sustainable lifestyle. Integrating the key concepts of permaculture, decentralisation, localisation and solidarity economy, we promote the development of tools and practices to increase the self-reliance and resilience of people and communities. Our actions include the organization of festivals and open events in collaboration with schools and social spaces, as well as participation in larger events in and outside the country.
We undertake the design and installation of food and herb production systems as well as the overall study and design of farms based on the principles and practices of permaculture. At the same time we undertake the study, design and installation of renewable energy systems for domestic and agricultural applications. The projects emerge through a planning process that takes into account needs and constraints, and aim to integrate human activity into local ecosystems while enhancing the self-reliance and resilience of the people and communities involved.
