Simple Solutions for Sustainable Living
A community of active citizens is forming in BíoBío, connecting and collaborating for the transition of the region. Over the weekend 5-6 of July they put on a show; Expostsismo 2, the second feria for sustainable reconstruction post February 27th earthquake.
Almost 600 people attended the two day event in Chillan-Viejo, content to have connected to local people with simple solutions at hand. Everyone is reminded that sustainability is not a distant goal, nor something terribly complex and difficult, but starts in humble acts of responsibility, at the centre of sustainable economies; the household. If many people can make a small contribution starting at theif own front door, a wave of change arises.
