The Agroecology Map Knowledge and Practices
is a technological platform that allows the mapping and exchange of Agroecological experiences with the objective of bringing people together (in all corners and corners, from the countryside to the city) in order to strengthen and create new networks collaboration tools that enhance the sharing of real (and imagined) experiences.
From the settlement, quilombos, small rural landowners, through urban gardens, going much further, planting ideas (and dreams) to reap welfare, sustainability and preservation.
This is an action that emerged during the preparatory course for the X Brazilian Congress of Agroecology, the VI Latin American Congress of Agroecology and the V Seminar on Agroecology of the Federal District and Surroundings, held in Brasília/DF, from 12 to 15 September 2017. This proposal was presented during the meeting where more than 204 experiences were registered.
The Agroecology Map has since been maintained by volunteers and our desire now is to bring improvements and new features, including a mobile app enabling more people to actively participate in this network. Our goal here is also to redesign the entire interface so that it becomes more intuitive and easier.
The Agroecology Map is Free Software
, that is, all the source code (knowledge), in addition to its data, is free and can be (re)used and shared freely. We believe that the Free Software movement's ideals of building "Socially Fair, Economically Viable and Technologically Sustainable" technology are in perfect synergy and synchrony with the many ideas and practices of Agroecology.
We believe in freedom, solidarity and sustainability. And we would like to continue our journey with your help. Together, walking and planting, respectfully, hard to reap new fruits, knowledge, practices and thus build sustainable and fair solutions.
