Sustainability initiatives[edit]

  • Centro de Resiliencia de Aranjuez
  • Ecologistas en Acción (Wikipedia): una confederación más de 300 grupos ecologistas de toda España con una estructura asamblearia y cuya unificación se produjo en diciembre de 1998. Forma parte del llamado ecologismo social, que entiende que los problemas medioambientales tienen su origen en un modelo de producción y consumo cada vez más globalizado e insostenible (productivismo y consumismo), del que derivan también otros problemas sociales; modelo que consideran necesario transformar si se quiere evitar la crisis ecológica. Pretenden asimismo recuperar la conciencia de los límites de la biosfera. Para ello realiza campañas de sensibilización así como denuncias públicas contra aquellas actuaciones que dañan el medio ambiente. Ecologistas en Acción edita además la revista El Ecologista, tomando el relevo de Gaia en 1999.
