E.THE FAMILY BIJEN DECIDED TO LEAVE OUR STANDARD LIVES AWAY FROM CONSUMPTION. WE are idealist with a great amount of experience in social projects, engineering, management, entrepeneurship and educating brazilian youth.. We know what it takes to set up a project in Brazil as we have lived and worked in Brazil for close to 7 years.. We will face many challenges and know we will need the help of others to realise our dreams. We like to lead by example and look forward to find the right people to join our project.

Eco Caminhos is part of the Caminhos Projects ( Caminhos Language Centre, Mais Caminhos and Eco CAminhos). It is our newest project. We bought a beautiful property 300.000 m2 in Cardinot near Nova Friburgo in Brazil. We took a long time to find this property and are excited that we found just what we wanted. Cool climate (1200 meters altitude), suficient water, mountains, beautiful views, security and nearby quality infrastructure in Nova Friburgo.

In May 2015 we will start building the first cob house. Pedro our architect will start to design the house in April and will than soon had the design over to Dave who will lead the building team.

We are looking now for up to 8 volunteers who would like to build a cob house in the period of May 2015 - October 2015. We accept volunteers who come for at least 1 month and who are willing to work normal work weeks. We offer free accomodation, food and wifi.
