AJUDADA is an emerging movement, which will be launched, in an international and very innovative event, on 14,15 and 16 June 2013, in Portalegre, Portugal.
AJUDADA is inspired by the key concept of ‘gift economy’ –it aims to promote gift as a creative act based on cooperation, trust in others and valuing others. The expressions of that gift are as diverse as the people that belong to a given community.
As many other towns in Portugal and all over the world, Portalegre is facing a severe economic and social crisis. AJUDADA’s main aim is to foster the ‘real’ economy of Portalegre so that it may serve as an inspiration and a model to other local communities anywhere in the world. AJUDADA is not simply an event: it is a positive manifestation, an emerging movement anchored in a local community with an international reach, formed by all the people getting together to start taking the future in their own hands and making their community more resilient.
AJUDADA is not a conventional conference. It is a unique, innovative and experimental process.
Given the current global and structural crisis that challenges our traditional methods, our values and our world view, nothing less than a new vision and a fundamental change is required. We need everybody! Give your AJUDADA!
