Evaluation day on Noah’s Ark!

Also on the last day of Noah’s Ark we had a great time…

A big lady from Bagnolo Piemonte called MariaGiovanna came up to Noah’s Ark to ask for help to the great experts in ecology gathered there in order to find solutions to the problems of food supply, water and waste which she’s encountering with the coming closer of the peak oil…Maria Giovanna explaining her problems with water and food supply…Maria Giovanna is desperate because she cannot cook big eggplants for her gradchildren…

Maria Giovanna asks the young people of the exchange for solutions to her problems!

the groups gather to elaborate a plan for Maria Giovanna!

they then expose their thoughts around making a sustainable living with Maria Giovanna

Maria Giovanna is happy and takes pictures and hugs everybody!

In the afternoon we had different activities like a running Quiz on the topics of the exchange, a round placard where the participants could give their opinions regarding food, fun, staff, contents, accommodation and workshops of the exchange and a sheet of paper where each participant could answer several questions for the evaluation and growth of our “Paradiso Ritrovato” experience and activities!

Anna and Lucia also presented a slide show with the worldwide existing possibilities of making a more sustainable world…

Ways of building in a more ecological way…

Examples of compost toilets…

Co-housing and community living…

The time bank and existing examples…

Urban gardens and how to be ecologically creative in towns!

In the evening we had a presentation on World Water Monitoring Day350.org and Clean up the World!

Chiara from the Italian group also presented her way of recycling old material and transforming it in bracelets, bags and books!

The last activity of the day before saying goodbye and going to bed was to exchange gifts with one another…this was a very deep heartfelt moment and we thank everybody for the beautiful team spirit that came out of it!

All the gifts we had for each other in the center of our circle.

Saying goodbye to each other!

Thanks to everybody for making this a truly beautiful and intense exchange!

We will miss you for real!

Love to all from “Paradiso Ritrovato”.
