Fundación Monte Mediterráneo, Andalusia. The foundation was created in 1992 animted by the World Exposition EXPO’92 in Seville. The aim was to put into practice with a concrete example what had been declared in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 as “sustainable development”. The adventure of a sustainable and ecological development in an Andalusian ecosystem – the Dehesa – had begun. Since then it follows the tradition of managing the dehesa: the Spanish name for grazed oak groves, which are mainly found in the southwest of Spain.
