The word “eco” derives from the Greek noun oikos which means home, family. When we consider the world as our home and humankind and all living creatures as our family this precious prefix takes on all its depth and universal meaning.
ecoVita came to light as a dream: to show “hands on” how you can create agricultural production and tourist hospitality based on harmonious integration of people’s lives and their natural, social, technological and economic environments.
ecoVita shares and applies the ethical and humanistic values iterated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the Earth Charter, which Permaculture summarises in these three concepts:
- Take care of the Earth
- Take care of people
- Share equally
