It is essential to place ourselves at the forefront of adaptation to climate change while upholding sustainability principles, many of which are present in indigenous knowledge of landscapes and their productivity. In this connection, sustainability develops a dynamic social, cultural, environmental and economic balance.

This connects the ancestral knowledge and scientific thinking relieving a new poetic line with the ecological movement. I believe that opens a dialogue between conservation and innovation, continuity and transmutation; by combining the local crafts with the global trends; and showing how selected geographies share universal and mutual creative affinities.   The recycling aspect happens through many dimensions: content, form and process.
