The air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the mild planet we live in...
Human dependence on biodiversity is total and immemorial. But it is not only a biological dependence, it is also cultural: beliefs, values, behaviours and objects created over generations allow us to understand and interact with nature.
In this itinerant space, open to curious of all ages, we reveal the beauty of biodiversity and the cultural richness of Alto Minho.
We offer an ecological and social perspective, showing some of the species that inhabit this region, exploring a wide variety of landscapes and unraveling how Alto Minhotos (the people living in Alto Minho) relate to this territory and its biodiversity.
Essentially, we aim to inspire everyone to contemplate nature and to realize that we are just one more species on the planet.
This interactive digital book compiles information presented at the exhibition “Alto Minho: landscapes, species, stories” that travelled through the ten municipalities of Alto Minho during the summer and fall of 2019.
