Asociación cultural y medioambiental Permacultura Cantabria
The ̈Cultural and Environmental Association Permacultura Cantabria ̈ develops its main activity in the Pasiegan Valleys (Cantabria, northern Spain). Like other rural areas of the country, Cantabria is characterized by an aging and declining population, high rates of unemployment and scarce opportunities for the social participation or learning of its inhabitants.
The intention of Permacultura Cantabria was to, little by little, create an international reference platform, based on ecological and healthy systems, which could help to generate enthusiasm and enrich society, which they appreciated as numb and without hope, due to the lack of references. In order to do so, they created an experimental, sustainable and self-sufficient property, in which they have hosted many volunteers, organised many courses and group activities.

Today Permacultura Cantabria is recognized as an NGO of public interest. It regularly collaborates with institutions, educational centers and socioeconomic fabric of Cantabria, with more than 20 employees. In addition to Cantabria, the NGO has programs and personnel in other autonomous communities of the Spanish territory, such as Madrid or Valencia.
