Tamera -- Test Field for a New Culture
Summer University 2010, 26th July - 4th August
Think Tank for Global Peace Work and Building Community
There is a movement growing worldwide: People are leaving their ways of life and their careers, which they no longer find meaningful. Young people are stepping out of the race of fear and competition, they no longer share the values of a culture made up of lies. They resist peacefully against the big destructive projects of globalisation. They are looking for a new way of living, for new professions, for a different life, for peace among them and a peaceful cooperation with nature. They found meeting places and share new aims. In crisis areas, farmers and refugees come together in peace villages and communities, often risking their lives in order to do so. They all are doing it because they feel that another world is possible.
Now, all these people and groups need knowledge about how this different world could look like. They need the exchange and cooperation with those who have worked and researched for its foundations for a long time.
For a future without war is really possible! A reconciliation of the human being with itself can succeed, even today. In some places on Earth, a civilisation of peace and cooperation, of ecological and social sustainability is being prepared.
The Peace Research Center Tamera in Portugal is a test field for a new culture, a model community working on technological, ecological and social answers for global challenges. 15 years after its foundation, you can study and experience here the basic knowledge for a life without war and separation, for cooperation with nature, for community and peace between the genders.
We invite you for a think tank for global peace work and building community. The Summer University 2010 will be a meeting place especially for those who refuse to loose their hope and their visionary power even in difficult times. We invite young peace workers from all over the world.
