A NETWORK OF CREATIVE CENTRES AROUND THE WORLD

Spot Habitats is an initiative to develop a network of creative centres around the world that combine innovative farming, eco-housing, smart tourism and green education in a range of different ecosystems. The first step in this long-term plan is to establish an eco-effective model in La Donaira.

IT´S TIME TO RETHINK THE HUMAN HABITAT

The search for a better way of doing things is presumably as old as settled societies. But with the industrialised planet heading towards ecological breakdown, it’s probably worth trying! At La Donaira we believe, by joining the global conversation and crowd-sourcing solutions, it really is possible to turn things around.

 

So, we are excited to be at the heart of collaborative initiative. In a global challenge to be launched in March 2018, spot habitats is inviting people with energy, vision and expertise to submit proposals for a habitat that reconnects man and nature, arts and science, agriculture and philosophy, conservation and sustainability. The ideas will be evaluated by a jury of leading architects, technological innovators, farmers and ecologists, and the winners announced at a prize-giving ceremony at La Donaira in 2019.

 

The finalists will all have the opportunity to help put their ideas into practice. at La Donaira. We anticipate a process of constant evolution, a living lab and, ultimately, a prototype for collaborative habitat rethinking to be adapted and adopted elsewhere.

 

Full details, updates and information on entering the spot habitats challenge are available on the spot habitats website.
