Ecovillaggio Torri Superiore

"Terre Di Confine” Network

Six companies, active in the agriculture, tourist-reception and “green” economy, engaged in the construction of a social, economic, working and structural change. It is based on criteria of environmental and social responsibility, and contrast  the profound inequalities existing in our society. The network “Le Terre di Confine” is made by 6 companies that intend to collaborate, exchange information and knowledge, engage in common activities, experiment and develop research. The aim is to promote an extended and profound revival of the network’s reference territories, the Valleys Bevera, Roja and Nervia and all the Ligurian municipalities bordering France (Ventimiglia, Olivetta San Michele, Airole, Dolceacqua, Rocchetta Nervina, Pigna and Triora).

The way through which we search for this new momentum, for too long marginal areas, goes through the increase of local agricultural production, ecological tourism, Presidium of the Territory, the promotion of energy efficiency with low environmental impact, and promotion of research.
Every activity of the network is based on the utmost attention to full ethical, social, economic and environmental sustainability.
