Description

Online screening of the documentary Head, Heart and Hands + Q&A session with local regenerative practitioners and the film director!

————–

Ready for a story on hope and inspiration? Agriculture has been around for 1000s of years on the steppe highlands of Spain. A 1.000.000 hectare area that is on the verge of desertification. But through regenerative agriculture and by revitalizing community spirit, it is shown how climate threats can be reversed. Because if we want different things to happen, we have to do things different.

AlVelAl, Inspiration 4 Action and Commonland invite you to the online premiere of the documentary ‘Head, Heart, Hands’, followed by a Q&A session with Alfonso Chico de Guzman, local regenerative farmer and cast member, Elvira Marín Irigaray, the coordinator of the Alvelal association, and Astrid Vargas, HHH’s film director.

During the Q&A we’ll zoom in to the work of landscape restoration in Spain and how their work is revitalizing the community spirit. Moderated by Commonland’s landscape manager of Spain, Erica ten Broeke, we will reflect on the highs and lows of the past 5 years. What lessons have they learnt on the way? And what is their vision for the future?

About Head, Heart and Hands

The documentary shares the stories of local farmers Santiaga, Alfonso, Loly and their community – a group of social entrepreneurs in South-East Spain who are transforming their lands to create a new economic model. One that puts back into the land more than it takes out while improving economic returns and revitalising community life.

With optimism and determination they offer practical and realistic solutions to combat desertification and decline of biodiversity and depopulation that affects so many rural areas around the world. The movie is an invitation to all of us to aspire to a better world. One built around healthy landscapes, thriving communities and regenerative economies.
