We are reaching the critical stage to stop one of the biggest atrocities committed in one of the most beautiful rivers in Portugal. This is a struggle spanning several years already, although all the effort being made to preserve the Tua river valley, it's natural and cultural wealth, has been contradicted by the political and economical forces organized to expropriate us of a universal common good.

Beyond Our Backyards (BoB) is an European project aiming at capacity building of actors of local agroecological initiatives (permaculture, community supported agriculture, transition initiatives, urban agriculture, among others) to study and engage in large scale political issues and processes which impact the local agroecological initiatives (e.g. seed policies, common agricultural policy, property related laws), and in the agro-ecological practices affecting these major political issues (e.g. seed exchanges, cultural practices, solidarity networks, political mobilizations). For this purpose the project brings together actors from three distinct spheres of action: academics, political activists and the developers of local agroecological initiatives.

Before starting my EVS project ‘Volunteers in Parks International' in Germany, I was working in Romania for 6 years in the Regional Agency for Environmental Protection in the region I live. But I felt the need to gain more scientific experience from experts in the area I work in and so I thought I would like to have this experience within an EVS project.
