Last weekend, Sunseed set up its stand in the NGO corner of Etnosur festival. They were a couple of sunseeders on the event, all ready to give a hand on the stand. From Friday until Sunday, it was then possible to make your own smoothie, blending fresh fruits with Sunseed’s famous “bicy-batidora”.  Eventually, a lot of people approached our stand to ride our bicycle-blender, which is a nice introduction about Sunseed’s vision of sustainable technologies.

But we also brought our natural homemade products : toothpaste powder, soap , calendula moisturizer cream or shampoo made and used in our project by the volunteers.

During the weekend, some creative activities even took place in Sunseed stand : our resourceful sunseeders managed to make a sign for the stand out of recycled carb boards. Thanks to sunseeders’ contribution, we also started to offer  body-painting and henna drawings to our visitors.

Our participation to Etnosur 2016 turned out to be a good opportunity to advertize more about Sunseed’s project among the community of people living in Spain as well as exchange with other projects.

Communication and Education, Courses and Events
DSCF1558EtnoSur en Alcalá la Real, Jaén By Andreia EtnoSur is a cultural festival which is place for a variety of artistic expressions, like dance, theatre, performances and cinema, in the joyful atmosphere of ethnic music. This festival has also an ecological and educational component, so the activities developed on it are appropriate for a diversity of ages and styles. For the same reason its important and interesting for Sunseed to be there again this year, for us to share our experience of living sustainably, and invite people to visit us and experience a more Eco Side of life. DSCF1600 DSCF1632Sunseed’s stand was so charming and with plenty of creativity : interactive games that we made recycling materials, like La Rueda de la Sostenibilidad- to learn for example about seeds, composting and trade economics. DSCF1553DSCF1582DSCF1575For the first time we had these lovely handmade models, of the most important elements of Sunseed and living sustainably: the compost toilet, the solar oven, the solar parabolic, the solar panel and the mini huerto. DSCF1562DSCF1593DSCF1565 DSCF1568It was a challenge to stay in the stand representing and presenting Sunseed to Spanish people, considering that none of us are fluent, that means that EtnoSur was a great opportunity to improve the language for us as volunteers. To enjoy the festival as much as possible we shared the responsibility of the stand together as a team. DSCF1625DSCF1631Being at EtnoSur was a nourishing and successful experience because the public was curious and interested about this respectful kind of life we are promoting, and all the team had a really good time!

Etnosur es un festival cultural que es el lugar para una variedad de expresiones artísticas, como la danza, el teatro, performances y el cine, en la atmósfera alegre de la música étnica.

Este festival tiene también un componente ecológico y educativo, por lo que las actividades que se desarrollan en él son apropiadas para una diversidad de edades y estilos. Por la misma razón es importante e interesante para Sunseed estar allí de nuevo este año, para que podamos compartir nuestra experiencia de vida sostenible, e invitar la gente a que nos visite y experimente un más Eco Side de la vida.

DSCF1600DSCF1632El stand de Sunseed era tan encantador y con un montón de creatividad: juegos interactivos que fabricamos reciclando materiales, como La Rueda de la Sostenibilidad-para aprender, por ejemplo, sobre las semillas, el compostaje y la economía comercial.

DSCF1553DSCF1582DSCF1575Por primera vez hemos tenido estos modelos artesanales encantadores, de los elementos más importantes de Sunseed y vivir de manera sostenible: el baño seco, horno solar, la parabólica solar, el panel solar y el mini huerto.

DSCF1562DSCF1593DSCF1565DSCF1568Fue un desafío permanecer en el stand, representando y presentando Sunseed al pueblo español, teniendo en cuenta que ninguno de nosotros es fluido, lo que significa que Etnosur, para nosotros como voluntarios, fue una gran oportunidad para mejorar el idioma .

Para disfrutar de la fiesta tanto como sea posible, compartimos la responsabilidad del stand juntos como un equipo.

DSCF1625DSCF1631Estar en Etnosur fue una experiencia nutritiva y exitosa porque el público era curioso e interesado sobre esta manera respetuosa de vivir que estamos promoviendo, y todo el equipo ha desfrutado un monton.
