1/15

The project of the final week of June and the project of the month at the same time leads us to Bogotá, Colombia, to the initiative Organización Ambiental Econciencia Terrestre (OEAT). In  Colombia there have been fierce protests after the government had decided to raise taxes by 20 % in one swoop. The whole thing happened as the international monetary fond (IMF) gave the order to raise taxes in order to be able to pay back their loans. Hence, people are justifiably on the street to protest.

 

The initiative OEAT promotes Urban Gardening in Bogotá. They plant vegetable and medicinal plants in the middle of the city and also pass on important knowledge. They contribute to more food sovereignty, better air and the emotional well-being of human beings. At the moment there is a demand for a workbike, as the products get delivered from Urban Gardening to the families.

The delivery can be very work intensive sometimes, as they work with normal bicycles. The purchase of  this trycicle should change the current situation and faciliate the delivery of vegetables and medicinal plants. Additionally, it should also serve for people to hold events and workshops on the weekends. The third field of use would be an application of the workbike as a „driving health food store“. At best, the bike is equipped with an engine, so it can be utilized for the many hills of Bogotá. This multifaceted bike costs around 1500 dollars. 

Here you can see Jaime Moreno Dueñas talking about the OEAT. It's only in Spanish but you can get an idea of what the whole initiative is about.
