El Manzano is a small community in the Biobío region of Chile waking up, rising up, asserting the fundamental human right and responsibility to self-determination. El Manzano is a learning community, self-organising for resilience, practicing sustainable living, educating for sustainability, networking a bioregion, calling to a nation, calling on the collective wisdom of life, of Gaia.
We are part of an international community, a global network making a global difference. We are part of a national team communicating to a network of interested Chileno people. We are part of a bioregional organisation mobilising the process of transition. We are part of a local community organising ourselves for resilience, part of a family taking responsibility, a household trying to meet its own needs from as close to home as possible through economy that regenerates.
We are two individuals taking a deep ethical stance together.
