The main objectives that support the establishment of this Ecovillage are: I) the improvement of the lifestyle of the people concerned; II) rural sustainable development; III) the creation of new jobs, mainly in the area of the Ecovillage. The essential strategy to be pursued in the carrying out of our agenda involves the combat of the degradation of nature. The knowledge the Ecovillages will spread can be summarized by the general focus of their three dimensions: Social/Community, Ecological Cultural/Spiritual. In our case, in the rural environment of the Northeast, this can be translated by the technology of permaculture, agroecology, agroforest, the replanting of native fruit trees, organic agriculture, housing, ecological building, health, education, transportation, energy and leisure. This technology will be made available and carried out by programs of planning, execution and assessment strategies of rural sustainable development that include fundraising for setting it up in the micro-region. As an immediate result we will have the establishment of the Ecovillage as an example of sustainability. As the program becomes well established there will be the generation of new jobs and income, cultural changes on the local level and, consequently, of the living conditions of the people in this semiarid region in Northeast Brazil. On the other hand, On the other hand, we all have the pleasure of experiencing joy and happiness of our practice of a mini universe, here, now and in the future.
