Community building on Your Travel Choice

Meet Melanie Courbet from Tribewanted who will be speaking about the project at the Ecotourism Conference in Portland, Oregon on September 8-10th.

Meet the team: Alejandro Arango

Alejandro from Costa Rica will be the tribe’s permaculture manager at John Obey Beach. In this interview Ale tells us about how he formed his approach to permaculture, why he’s coming to Sierra Leone and what he hopes we can collectively achieve.

My name is Alejandro Arango Berrocal, Costarican, Central American, I am multi-active and hyperactive person, dancer, acrobatics, adventure sports, walking my spiritual path, architect student finishing my studies.

“How can we detach ourselves from nature and manipulate it to advance our own human interests?” This question has led us to our current environmental crisis and to be trapped in an economic box.

“I’m looking forward to walking the talk.”
