Explore the use of available local resources.

Innovate by designing according to local needs and possibilities and not by copying models imported from outside the community. The viabilization of resources – especially water – already constitutes part of a previously unexplored agenda. Furthermore, it presents many possibilities for co-creation in the community and in the Sierra de Santa Catarina. With urbanxchanger we have launched a pilot project with a water-harvesting dome that illustrates to the community a possible way to manage rainwater and has great potential to be replicated in individual housing units.
