We believe it is necessary for us as well as for other similar initiatives and for families or individuals who are considering this option of lifestyle in the future.
We hope to raise financial aid for the legal journey on which we are embarking.
Thanks to everyone for your support.
The number of inhabitants is now nearly what it was in the original village.
Today, it is a beautiful place, full of life and flourishing youth, in which we live in harmony with the environment. We care for the land and animals, and our economy and way of life is simple.
We have adopted traditional forms of living, including the transportation of our household goods, and anything else we need to build our homes by donkey, as there is no vehicle access to our village.
In 2017, we face disturbing obstacles and administrative attacks, because we are living in a protected natural space, facing various indictments and legal charges. The prosecution wants to apply the law in a literal way, without taking into account the real impact of our "eco-rural" way of life, and we are facing criminal indictments of our buildings, accusing us of environmental and urban infractions, and threatening fines of hundreds of thousands of Euros, which we see as unfounded, demolishing our homes, and imprisoning us in the worst of cases.
Waarom is dit belangrijk
It is important to create a legal path that can serve as a precedent for when administrations block or prohibit the repopulation of abandoned villages by those who seek a more sustainable low-consumption lifestyle.
We appeal to the growing numbers of you who feel solidarity with our vision, from our town and region, to your organizations, your acquaintances, your relatives in other cities and countries who align with models of sustainability, ecological responsibility, Degrowth, New Ruralism, etc. Either because you practice them yourself, or because you've been interested in them.
