2018 Twinner Laotu activities

Last year our 2018 twinner organization Laotu visited different ecology groups from different countries. Green Circle is one of them, a Hungary conservation organization, which is based in Hajdúböszörmény. They went to see Hungarys oldest national park: it’s a place where birds are under worldwide nature conservancy.

Besides last week Laotu established a cozy housing in Shenzhen which promotes an organic lifestyle. This project includes yoga training courses and an offering of organic chocolate and tea. Through the cooperation of agriculture expert Marco of Naturland, yoga teacher Faye and the founder of Laotu Luojia enabled this opening.
