Casa Pueblo is a community self-management project that is committed to the appreciation and protection of natural, cultural and human resources. It was born in 1980 when the government of Puerto Rico wanted to start a mining operation in 17 silver, gold and copper deposits. The mining would have caused an ecological and social catastrophe in 36,000 acres of land in the municipalities of Adjuntas, Utuado, Lares and Jayuya. They look for sustainability in the Island defending the natural resources of an unsustainable development but always building advanced projects in the energy, educational and protection theme of Puerto Rico. In Casa Pueblo they also have an ecological and community radio (RCP1020), and proposals for new forests with community management at the service of the country.
