Production by means of regeneration
The minery is a global event that has constantly wasted the planet for a long time, now this is one of the most serious environmental issues in addition to this the remarkable overcrowding in cities which leads to higher energy costs and higher food consumption, is why the “GEA” initiative arises which aims to restore life to places inert victims of mining and exploitation and in turn make them fertile land for the production and the resurgence of habitat and the environment.
Due to the migration to the cities, human occupation of the territory is less, then large areas for food production, environmental remediation and biodiversity will be released.
They arise opportunities to increase the efficiency of production systems and distribution that sustain life in the cities, in the final analysis, the concentration of thousands of people in a small space facilitates access to consumer goods, reduce costs and distances transport and waste production focuses on smaller areas, all these events will reduce the ecological footprint.
– Create complex applicable to all affected areas.
Colombia is currently one of the most mining countries in the world, and even worse is that most of it is illegal for which there are no standards and environmental regulations. Antioquia is the largest mining region and its capital Medellin has several quarries inside and its peripheries has significant mineral deposits that has been exploited and that have significantly degraded the region, so the city of Medellin and its surrounding areas are ideal to start to implement the project which can be replicated later in all mining areas of the world.
