In these transition times we are living, practical examples of a Sustainable structure and way of life are needed. Our country needs such initiatives more than ever as it will have a positive impact at the local community and also promote Greece abroad. Hopeland has its reasons of existence at many levels: more than an ecological community it will be a place where new technologies can be tried and showcased, spreading knowledge that is needed through workshops and seminars (with a special care for children), while implementing new structures (exchange economy ,“lets” system, collective governance). A way of life that creates conditions for balance and harmony at all levels.
Hopeland, a land of hope as suggested by its name, is an eco-village which is now being developed in the prefecture of Argolida just outside Argos in a magnificent location.
It aims at being a community serving as a practical example of sustainability, by showing through its operations how a different natural and sustainable lifestyle is possible.
Respect and co-creation with nature while minimizing the ecological footprint
Creation and application of new structures (such as equitable collective governance and “new” economic structures)
Sharing/spreading practical knowledge
Our current project has to do with hippo therapy for children with special needs such as autism and or ADD/ADHD. We already have a farm in Argolis Greece and we are planning to offer 7 days program during the summer to families who have children with special needs, offering hippo therapy to the children and knowledge and support to parents.
We are looking for a partner who already has an expertise on this area and is willing to cooperate with us and create a special place for people in need on our land in Argolis Greece.
We offer our know how on hippo therapy as well as the parent's support having grate experience on both matters. We also offer a great peace of land which is prepared to be a sustainable farm. We are also offering our two beloved horses.
