More on Palomino

Remember that small village at the coast of Colombia where students and inhabitants are working together to create a better future by making sustainable buildings, researching, documenting and sharing old habits and customs to prevent them from being lost forever after another generation? It is called Palomino and it is an example of how social innovation can be carried out successfully by involving a community. My friend Job Nieman blogged about it earlier on this website, here.

Well, here is a movie of the project, in Spanish though, but even when you do not understand Spanish, you will see the pleasure, hope and strength that the project brings to everybody involved. Keep up the good work there!
