Freixo do Meio is the project of a man that became a sustainable reality for many beings. It is a big organic farm and organism, integrating with the sourrounding Montado, a typical ecosystem from Alentejo, Portugal. The presence of human beings here wants to be a peaceful cooperation which welcome and arouse biodiversity.
In this visual summery, Alfredo, manager of this ecosystem, starts explaining his philosophy which lays as a basis on his way of farming. In this open view, a circle of people works in the puzzle of nature, in a balance which allows production without exploitation of resources (agroecology).
In the video we see people and their various skills, Cooperation, ecofunctionality, managing the risks, as well as a biodinamic approach. The production of the farm flows to Alfredos farm shop in Lisbon, to allow a honest economy which grant the workers to be paid.
Alternative projects are included: beekeeping, permaculture, medicinal garden, and a horse-riding school. In the end it´s shown how Sorraias horses (indigenous ancient breed) are respected and kept wild in their ecosystem. This video is an example of how man can act in a sensitive way, contributing with local production and environment protection.

The International Sunpulse Seminar, held at Tamera Peace Research Center in August 2015, showcased the pioneering work of Jürgen Kleinwächter and his team, together with Tamera’s energy technology team. The latest model low-temperature Stirling Engine, the Sunpulse 500, was shown in action and the most recent research on a precision solar furnace was presented.
Jürgen Kleinwächter’s work encompasses a wide range of enabling technologies for future decentralised energy supply networks that function in cooperation and synergy with nature and human needs. A recently founded company, SunOrbit, is making these systems commercially available.
The seminar brought together engaged decision makers and active cooperation partners from around the world. Much of the material presented at the seminar is available here online.
