ZOI GIORTI – A two-day festival on homesteading and self-sufficiency

12-13th December 2015

Nea Guinea organizes a two-day festival on homesteading and self-sufficiency called ‘ZOI GIORTI’ with the goal of:

– promoting the ideas and practices of a sustainable way of life based on solidarity and cooperation.

– supporting the creation of solidarity economy infrastructures, through which the relationship between producer and consumer is redefined on the basis of trust and transparency.

– informing and promote debates on current social and environmental issues.

– promoting the exchange of knowledge and practical skills relating to basic needs for a greater degree of self-sufficiency in our daily life.

The festival includes an exhibition and market of organic products, presentations, informative events and practical workshops, through which producers and processors will share with the participants their knowledge and skills. At the same time, the festival will be surrounded with musical and theatrical performances and activities for children.

In order to get to know each other through our initiatives, to share all that we love and move forwards!
