Summary from the recent dialogue in Sóller, Mallorca.


IMG_7839As you can see from the photo, people coming from outside (yellow notes) saw the assets and concerns of the area similarly. It was encouraging to see such engagement in the exercise as the map quickly filled with impressions. It is also encouraging to see the number of assets is slightly more than the concerns.


What were  seen as assets

  • Transport: trams, airport close
  • Tourism
  • The international community, celebrities and some high powered people have the valley as their second home
  • The vibrant local culture.
  • Mallorca as a brand that can attract residents and visitors
  • The wonderful  environment
  • Capacity: cheap flights, spare rooms
  • The history of the place, with its biomass generator and history of being self sufficient until the railway tunnel was built in the early 1900s
  • Nature strong asset
  • sea and mountain
  • agriculture, friendliness, sense of community
  • micro climate
  • hiking as assets

The concerns:

  • deteriorating drinking water quality
  • degradation of nature
  • prices of properties
  • dependency on tourism – valuation disparity
  • air pollution
  • youth without work
  • wild goats and sheep – eco balance
  • motorcycling on weekends

Unique assets:

  • Lot of potential to build on for surroundings and people
  • thriving local entrepreneurship
  • unique climate, environment

Unique concerns:

What was the Deeper Quest experienced by the delegates?

Many have in themselves the need to change. Collective narrative comes down to love, respect and humility. Quest to change  society. Balance between changing self and changing society

Emerging themes

Attracting and connecting, the power of the few, cooperation not competition – we are seeing and evolution (Time banks, cooperatives, resilence, sense of community, networking, supporting local enterprises, etc.)
