The Bioversity- Live school

“Becoming a “Global Native” ! learn it at the BioversityLive school”

“Be yourself the change that you desire for this world ! ”

Mahatma Gandhi


We are offering a 4, 6 or 12 month learning and training program for a sustainable MOTHER EARTH LOVING future and a Global-Native culture

We all know that humanity has now come to a crossroad, meaning for us: “to be” or “not be”.  A good Future ! or bad disaster !

But the egoistic, capitalistic system has made most of us addicted to such a system, and that we want more, more and new and newer fashion with out any end !

And we do know this is bad for the Planet and us! But the many humans cant get out of this trap of our own perdition, because of addiction, weakness or stupidity.

Is there no escape from this curse?

Yes there is!

For some it is faith ! For others, it is visions like those of the Global Native, where faith, knowledge, tradition and experience unites to form a genious, motivating and new higher dimension. This is helping us immensly to form the future we really want, deep down in our hearts.

Hear is our project:

Bioversity: a new Life-school project for the next generation of Global Natives!

This is a one year Demeter, Eco-village, Permaculture learning experience – combined with a world round trip of learning and living in an Eco-Village / community, starting in Portugal, Canada, USA to central and south America, New Zealand and finishing in Asia before returning home.

This is to learn a different life from mainstream – a life in an Eco-village is realistic and can bring your life in a new dimension for a better, more natural fulfilling happy life. This is what the planet needs, and you deserve to be a part from that vision for a Mother Earth loving culture.

Become a Global Native and learn it at the Bioversity Life-school because most of us are lost children from Mother Earth! Welcome Home! Mother Earth is calling and wanting you!

The living alternative to the University

If you would like to make a career in the system, go to a university. However, if you would like to develop and grow beyond the conventional and make a career in an alternative culture and lifestyle, join us!


Our Natural Campus is the alternative to the University. We are a School for sustainable and natural – organic way of life. Learning by doing, healing and new awareness for futuristic Mother Earth loving culture!

Today, universities offer courses in all topics you can think of, except an all inclusive, practical course to learn about holistic, natural culture and sustainable Mother-Earth loving lifestyle is not yet offered. That’s why our Bioversity Nature Campus, offering a place for learning and training all related topics. Because such a Mother-Earth Loving culture is urgently needed for mankind and her future!

We want to make the alternative knowledge and ideas for natural, organic and futuristic ways of living that have been made in the last 30 to 100 and more years accessible to everyone interested.


In 2016 we are starting courses about organic building, Bio-Dynamic, gardening, farming, and landscaping, the principles of permaculture, usage of renewable green energy, alternative technologies, naturopathy and complementary medicine and therapy, ecological and socially fair economical systems, social art, teamwork, communal living, self governance, development of consciousness, spirituality, survival strategies, eco tourism and many other things that support the development of a sustainable culture.

Students can study all the topics in 10 modules or choose an individual program. The Bioversity nature campus is a live school or school for living life for all ages.


The education and training model of the Bioversity Nature Campus is based on three main principles:



  1. Learning by Doing: We teach on site, immersed in nature, working with nature. This means the students live simple and naturally in the countryside. Here we practice and develop further what we learn in the courses.


  1. Learning in a Team: We share the work and support each other in everything we do. The basis is working towards goals as a team; not as an individual. At Global Native we focus on sharing, helping, and healing each other.


  1. Learning for Everyone: We try to make our course as accessible to everyone by offering it at an affordable cost for and accepting students without qualifications.


The training program is aiming to bring participants back to their true, natural potential and achieve sustainability in the student’s life and eventually in society. The basic introductory course can be the start to a new occupational chapter for seekers and people who would like a real chance in their lives towards an alternative future.


Before starting the 10 module course, we offer our students a 1, 3, or a 6 month basic introductory course where we look at all the topics to get a good overview. This gives the students the opportunity to individually choose courses according to personal preference and interest.


Participants require an adequate level of fitness and health because our courses have a strong focus on working within nature.
