From August 22 to 24, a little before the ecovillage meeting, an introductory workshop on Dragon Dreaming has been organized in Amalurra. It is a theoretical experimental training workshop focused on INNOVATIVE people and organizations, entrepreneurs, startups and professionals from any activity sector.

This is how the facilitators of this workshop define us: Johnny Azpilicueta and Xaba OM what this innovative tool is, what it is for and how it works.


Dragon Dreaming is an innovative method for the collaborative development and management of creative and sustainable projects. Its base integrates different tools, dynamics and the application of collective intelligence, making the planning, management, implementation and evaluation processes of our project much more motivating, efficient and co-responsible with the environment.
