Project Wadi Attir is a groundbreaking initiative of a Bedouin community in the Negev desert, establishing a model sustainable farm that leverages Bedouin traditional values, know-how and experience with "The Sustainability Laboratory's" signature approach to development. Some of these days I had the great pleasure to spend a few hours with Dr. Michael Ben-Eli, who is the founder of both the Lab and the holistic project Wadi Attir with sustainability principles, which are not only related to the Material, Economic and Social, but also to Life, and Spiritual Domains. He was a close associate of R. Buckminster Fuller, with whom he collaborated on research.
INTEGRATED, HOLISTIC APPROACH
The project was initiated by The Sustainability Laboratory in partnership with the Hura Municipal Council. It presents an integrated, holistic approach to development, relevant to the local community, to the region, and to other arid zones around the world. | read more about Wadi Attir | Buckminster Fuller on the oralab-Blog (german post)
