slow travel and sustainable gaia

Some glimpses from Portugal in Jornal de Negocios from 2007-05-29:

A group of more or less abandoned villages in Portugal has formed Rede de Aldeias do Xisto. Old houses will be recuperated and used to house tourists that look more for local colour and culture than speedy impressions. Slow travel. With a touch of sustainability.

Vila Nova hopefully will plan to become sustainable in the near future. Luis Filipe Menezes (autarca?) will put forward a programme for self reliance. He has invited the University of Aveiro to plan the city into self reliance in energy including waste management ie recycling. Lets hope Gaia will become a role model for the rest of Portugal! Something for Mesquita!!!
