At the moment, we work with local, alternative communities, skilled professionals In particular, we concentrate on education for children, education for adults, growing food using aquaponic as growing technique(s).

 

THE PROJECT AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION. PROBLEMS, NEEDS AND SOLUTIONS
In the development of the project, we encountered implementation problems, such as never having been done before in Holland. In order to cope with the problem, we tried to conduct comparative research about best practices, working with an established organization. We managed to establish a good relationship with the institutions, securing political support. During the implementation, we did not face any regulatory barriers.
From the economic point of view, the project is mostly not sustainable. In particular, we benefit from private funds, such as personal finance. In order to develop, we will need people/resources, policy support, new technologies, and improved visibility.
