Defend the Sacred

Tamera, Portugal

A meeting of international activists has given rise to the manifestation of a book; Defend the Sacred. The meeting which took place at Tamera, a peace research and education centre in Southern Portugal, brought together individuals from fields including human rights, water protection and peace building.

Published in February 2019, the book is a culmination of hope, courage, self-organisation, compassion and deep humaneness. By sharing their search for a source of effective life protection, the protagonist voices represent a force to be heard and recognised.

The ambition is that the book will lead to new ideas of how to effectively organise a movement for both improved human relations, especially between men and women, coupled with clear notions of how to protect life and resources: water, soil, trees, oceans and climate. With the hope that the inspiring contributions within the book will ignite a movement which no longer fights against the existing but builds the new. Through following a dream of being grounded in connectedness with Mother Earth embedded in a ‘planetary community’ of kindred spirits.


sankalpa has a high goal of creating change by relying on personal contacts. Global issues and personal integrity are coming together, this is my main impression of sankalpa. ‘Humaneness’ is the word which describes it best.
