Our essence

The nature

We incorporate the wisdom of nature into experiential and practical learning, in direct interaction with plants, animals, silence, and the mountains. Nature is our essence and our personal equilibrium depends on it.

The community

Learning is a social activity and for us the group is a laboratory for growth. Community helps us overcome unnecessary limits, gives us security and well-being, all essential ingredients for learning. With the group we learn to relate, to create, the feeling of belonging, and commitment.

Support

We welcome the seeker in the path of knowledge, promoting all individual potential. We help to enhance the best of us for collaboration and an effective daily life of solidarity.

Humanizing science

Creation is complexity, and thought is linked to the body, heart and soul. With an open reading of reality we erase the boundaries between the humanities and the sciences. We rigorously combine psycho-spiritual work with academic knowledge and scientific methodology.

Guidance

We teach healthy relational references, indispensable for cooperation, leadership, creation of projects, and working environments with social and family members.A way of life that helps to guide the society of tomorrow and guide the evolution of each personal project.

Action

We educate ourselves for action and learn by doing. Courses and trainings include experimentation and the practices of acquiring relational methodology and improving the environment. Practical learning includes experience, information, questioning, hypothesis, experimentation, and feedback.

History

The idea for the project started in 1999, and in 2000 the Pyrenees Sustainable Development Center was created. In 2004, self-awareness workshops in nature and a working group for the creation of a specialized center on ecological awareness were started. In 2012, Ferran Pauné, passionate about nature and human development, purchased an old farm and started an architectural project, purchasing and using locally available natural building materials. In 2018, the Cooperativa Compartint Consciència with Feliu Funollet, professor of nature sports, was founded, with the aim of promoting the works as well as a greater diversity of courses. With the help of new partners, construction is projected to begin in 2021.
