Lakabe, forest land. Lakabe is a small village located in the Arce-Artzibar valley, Navarra. It was left uninhabited in the 1960s and was occupied in 1980 by a group of young people from the conscientious objection movement who dreamed of building an alternative and transformative community space, adapting to the rhythms of nature. Today this project continues with this same essence: to make possible and experience utopia.
About forty people now give life to this village; building and affirming a project of community, shared economy, work, resources and making decisions in assembly. Cultivating the vegetable gardens and taking care of the animals, facing from the community space the life, the human and gender relations, baking ecological bread, managing our own electricy with an isolated system that works only with renewable energies, reforesting and making a respectful forest management with the environment, working to create a sustainable world, also at human level.
Nurturing Utopia. Walking.
