Towards a New Culture - Rumo a uma nova cultura

Tamera at Rio+20

In times of an approaching breakdown of the big political and economic systems, a perspective for a future worth living is more crucial than ever before. The contribution we would like to make to Rio+20 and the People's Summit is a presentation of the Tamera Peace Research Center in Portugal, which for more than thirty years has researched towards a comprehensive model for a future society free of fear, violence and oppression. In these years or research much knowledge has been gained and interconnected in many aspects  - water, food, energy, healing, social life etc. - and tested under real life conditions.
During the time in Rio we will host an own booth at "Future Territories" of the People's Summit (Aterro do Flamengo) where people can visit us continuously.
We are looking forward to meet you in Rio!

"In its actions and words, the Tamera Peace Research Centre has demonstrated an impressive dedication to an inspiring vision that seeks to address urgent problems of the day, ranging from dilemmas of ordinary life to awesome questions of decent survival. Daunting tasks, but unless seriously undertaken the future may be grim."
Noam Chomsky
