An Environmental Awareness event is the most effective way to offer to the younger generation a concrete example of how to live a life while respecting the environment and the creatures that inhabit it. Permaculture is an excellent tool that offers a deep understanding of life cycle’s and the human being placement in it while turning it this into a practice.

 

We will implement the project integrating the festival, its participants and the natural environment by using permaculture principles and ideas. The entire project here presented is a place to share Visonary Art, Eco Architecture principles, Conscious Nutrition, Organic Food Production and Sustainable Energy. We Are One is a festival inspired by the principles of unity, peace, creativity and sustainability; a place where participant, through active participation, can experience existential transformation in the body and spirit, while experiencing an alternative life style and witness the culture of sustainability development potential.

 

When “I” is replaced by “We” even Illness becomes Wellness

WAO Festival is a permanent laboratory for environmental sustainability and a multi disciplinary initiative dedicated to the development and promotion of initiatives in the field of eco-architecture and permaculture. Our aim is to increase the skills of individuals in the field of sustainability through the organization of festivals, events, conferences, workshops, presentations and through active participation. Our activities will also be dedicated to agricultural production using organic methods, the recovery of farming techniques and traditional building, the promotion of responsible tourism and the development of open source solutions for sustainability.
To apply permaculture principle to every single aspect of the organization of the festival is the fundamental goal that we have set for ourselves, as well as promoting sustainability in every aspect of daily life. Since the first event we aim to use mainly composting toilets, biofuels, solar/wind energy and organic food produced locally. In the medium term we aim to have in place a biological water treatment plant, structures implemented according to the principles of eco-architecture, and the experimental orchards developed with the method of synergistic. As soon as technologies advancement will allow, we aspire to realize an event completely off-the-grid.
WAO has the fundamental purpose of facilitating the evolution of both the individual and the collective through the exchange of experience and informations and to guide the individual to fulfill his full potential; cocreating a positive future for this and for generations to come.
Our project is basically a space for cocreating evolution, and inspire the spark of virtuous behavior and care for environment in participants, while triggering a new interpretation of reality.

FESTIVAL HEADLINERS

FESTIVAL HEADLINERS

The dance floor is the place where the individuality dissolve, hearts beat as one, the spirit rises and consciences blend. The convergence of spirit, music and nature, a concrete experience in a metaphysical world and the authentic moment in which we experience the true unity and the sense of being here and now, is our true purpose. Electronic music is queen but also leaves space to his vassals; the sound system will give us feelings of rock, techno, jazz and psytrance in an eclectic mix of genres and experiments.

As the Cal-Earth Institute, founded by Khalili, says: “Superadobe uses the materials of war for peaceful ends, integrating traditional earth architecture with contemporary global safety requirements”.

  4. Earthships

    EARTHSHIPS are a type of passive solar-powered houses with a built-in heating and cooling zero-impact energy system. They come with independent energy and water supplies, and are made with environmentally friendly materials and building techniques, which allow to create sustainable structures in a harmonic connection of methods, technologies and waste products such as tyres, glass bottles (for day lighting), cans as well as natural elements like soil, clay, straw and wood.
