Universidade de Verão de Tamera: «Global Grace Village–Criar modelos para um futuro sem guerra»( 29/7 a 9/8 na eco-aldeia de Tamera, em Colos,Odemira)

 




Vai realizar-se entre os dias 29 de Julho e 9 de Agosto a Universidade de Verão de Tamera, este ano direccionada para a necessidade de criar modelos para um futuro sem guerra.


A sobrevivência hoje em dia já não é uma questão privada, mas sim global.
A Terra foi feita como um paraíso. Mas os seres humanos esqueceram-se disto. Hoje, quando amplas partes da humanidade vive em sofrimento, e uma destruição que diariamente abrange cada vez mais seres, torna-se uma questão de sobrevivência lembrarmo-nos do grande sonho original de um planeta são, um lar para tudo o que vive.
Conhecemos a nossa força de realização? Sabemos o quanto pequenos grupos de pessoas conseguem alcançar quando têm uma clara visão do futuro? Quem quer terminar a Guerra precisa de uma Visão para a Paz.
Após três anos da experiência de Paz Monte Cerro, o Centro de Pesquisa de Paz Tamera convida a um Verão de criação de visões.

A visão da GLOBAL GRACE VILLAGE
Como será uma sociedade futura que não se baseie no medo, dominação e violência, mas sim na confiança? Que estruturas tecnológicas, ecológicas, arquitectónicas terá uma sociedade quando esta estiver em ressonância com a ordem cósmica da vida? Quando surgirão comunidades do futuro nas quais os filhos possam inteiramente confiar nos seus pais outra vez, e nos quais amantes nunca mais se tenham que abandonar? Que profissões existirão, e como as pessoas jovens poderão aprender a empenhar a sua grande força pela paz?
Chamamos a esta visão de paz GLOBAL GRACE VILLAGE. Acreditamos que o primeiro modelo de paz planetário, realizado em toda abrangência e profundidade, será uma contribuição decisiva para um futuro sem guerra.

Próximos passos da realização: Aldeia de Investigação de Paz Médio Oriente
De momento, em Tamera um grupo de Israelitas, Palestinianos e pessoas de outras nacionalidades preparam-se para o estabelecimento concreto de um primeiro modelo de paz. Após a Universidade de Verão, seguirão viagem para o Médio Oriente, para verificar se lá poderá surgir a primeira Aldeia de Investigação de Paz. Eles apresentarão o seu trabalho. Esperamos visitantes da Comunidade de Paz San José de Apartadó da Colômbia, e muitos outros hóspedes.

Visionários, cientistas, jovens activistas, indígenas, aventureiros do amor: Agora que as crises mundiais se sobrepõem umas às outras, em um momento no qual se revela a mudança de épocas que estamos a enfrentar, juntemo-nos para aprender a VER.

Vassamalli Kurtaz, Todas, India

Vassamalli Kurtaz, member of the Tribe of the Toda in South India

For thousands of years the tribe of the Toda has been living in harmony with nature and their old tribal laws. Their traditions show what life in connectedness and harmony with nature can look like. Men and women have very different roles, yet they are absolutely equal in rights. It's the women in whose hands the community rests. However, slowly modern times are breaking in, in the form of eucalyptus reforestations which make the water for the herbs and the buffaloes -- the living basis of the Toda -- run scarce, and also by ?land stealing? by European multinationals, and in the form of cultural influence. Vassamalli Kurtaz is an impressive voice and time witness from one of the last ancient cultures, living in harmony with planet Earth.

Benjamin von Mendelssohn, Portugal

Both during and after completing his degree in choreography, composition and performing arts, Benjamin was active in a number of social/political organisations whose aim was to contribute to a culture of peace. This included co-founding the Peace University, Berlin and Potsdam. Throughout this working period he increasingly realised that to bring about a culture of peace that is profoundly effective and sustainable the human and social issues between people and colleagues must become the core issue. In 1998 Benjamin joined the Peace School Mirja, Portugal to go into an intensive study on the social issues. He became vice-director of the Institute for Global Peace Work in 2002 and supported the build up of a strong international network and political office. As well as this he began focussing on Israel and Palestine and developing the idea of the Peace Research Village project in 2000. As a direct descendent of the Mendelssohn family, Benjamin works closely with the background of a German-Jewish identity and was therefore highly motivated to support innovative new peace initiatives in this Holy Land. In 2005 he founded and became director of the Peace Research Village Association.

Together with her 8 year old daughter she is living in Tamera.
Uri Ayalon (Israel): As a journalist, pacifist, anarchist and non-violent activist against the politics of the Israeli government for many years he came to the conclusion that in order to really make a change it is not enough to fight the system but to create a new life.

O local onde se situa Tamera é designado por "Monte do Cerro". Tem 1340 ha e fica na região do Alentejo, em Portugal - uma das regiões menos densamente povoadas da Europa. A forma da propriedade assemelha-se a uma águia que pousa, e por essa razão esse tornou-se o nosso logótipo. O local tem muitas pequenas lagoas e algumas nascentes de água fresca, florestas de eucaliptos e sobreiros, e prados. Os Verões são habitualmente quentes e secos, o Inverno é a estação das chuvas, apesar das mudanças climáticas e de terem existido algumas secas nos últimos anos.

A terra ainda sofre pela destruição das florestas e outros maus-tratos agrícolas em toda a região durante as últimas décadas. É o nosso desafio tornar o Monte do Cerro um paraíso natural outra vez. Tamera tem boas relações com os seus vizinhos, porque os Alentejanos são pessoas hospitaleiras e amigáveis. A terra e os seus habitantes passaram por grandes mudanças nas últimas décadas - ditadura, opressão, até fome, uma revolução não-violenta, integração na UE, e agora o imenso impulso da globalização. Muitos vêem Tamera como uma hipótese e um modelo para uma vida diferente.


Tamera - Healing Biotope 1
Monte do Cerro
7630 Colos
Odemira
Portugal


Tamera is a peace research village with the goal of becoming “a self-sufficient, sustainable and duplicatable communitarian model for nonviolent cooperation and cohabitation between humans, animals, nature, and Creation for a future of peace for all.".
It is also often called a “healing biotope.".Literally translated, "biotope" simply means a place where life lives.
In Tamera, however, “healing biotope” is also described as a “greenhouse of trust,” “an acupuncture point of peace,” and “a self-sufficient future community."
