Escape is a CATALYST for positive change in the world. We do not think that we alone can change the world. We simply want to do our best to bring together many different IDEAS from around the world to build a place thats SUSTAINABLE on all levels; that leaves a SMALL FOOTPRINT in the world; and that can set an EXAMPLE for others to follow. We aim to do this by creating examples of alternative incomes through RESPONSIBLE tourism, ALTERNATIVE low cost building methods, natural fertilizers, renewable energy sources, alternatives to sanitation, etc. Through these initiatives, a relationship of LEARNING is formed between those in the COMMUNITY and those coming from outside. A BALANCE can be sought that will meet the needs of the people while PROTECTING endangered species of plants and animals.
Escape is a site that invites others to join in combining research, public sensitization, education and training.
