What is CASA ?
CASA is a Spanish acronym for ‘Sustainable Settlements of Latin America’. CASA seeks to coordinate and strengthen the activities of the Latin American national and regional networks to promote, develop, investigate and disseminate sustainable and regenerative lifestyles.
CASA seeks to create and give visibility to living examples that can inspire change towards lifestyles oriented towards conservation and regeneration of ecological, economic and social systems , which we consider vital to ensure the continuity of the human species on planet earth.
