Journal Entry 1 by keithpp from Farnborough, Hampshire United Kingdom on Tuesday, September 23, 2008
'Elsewhere they are tearing down the rain forest. Here, we're putting it back. If we can do this in Colombia, there's hope that people can do it anywhere.' -- Paolo Lugari, founder of Gaviotas

"Gaviotas is a sum of random occurrences born out of chaos. It's a place where chance can incubate, where cooperation replaces competition." -Paolo Lugari

Gaviotas, a small village in strife-torn Colombia, that sets an example to us all in sustainable development.

I remember reading Gaviotas: A Village to Reinvent the World some time ago, or maybe I read about it (I feel sure I once had the book). It is an example to inspire us all and I will look forward to reading it again.

A tenth anniversary edition has been published this month (September 2008), but this is not it.
