Our association supports local development hand-in-hand with other local organizations and initiatives.
Promoting the local actors
We run different types of mobility projects: Erasmus+ training courses for Adult Education, European projects’ meetings, international events… This means organizing stays on the hyper-touristic island of Tenerife.
Each time we welcome foreigners, we promote the local actors and economy. Associations, project leaders, sustainable tourism guides, social enterprises, eco-farms… Our aim is double: to support and give visibility to these changemakers; and to inspire the foreign visitors.
They are the ones making our Erasmus+ Training Courses special!
Local workshops and activities
Running projects with the local community
Our latest project: Intergenerational Permaculture Garden
Socio-ecological project in Tenerife, Canary Islands: a permaculture garden where kids from the nearby school and seniors from the village will work together, thus fostering intergenerational relations, social inclusion and environmental awareness.
This local project was launched by the association La Punta-Bajamar Avanzando in January 2021 amid the complicated situation due to Covid-19 , and will encourage locals to maintain healthy outdoor activities in a safe way.
Sharing experiences, learning from each other…
Permaculture takes nature as an example: so just like nature, we adapt to any situation… Including pandemics! Gardening is done in small groups, the seniors and students communicate through a whiteboard, and of course: we breathe lots of fresh air.
