“CASA Dominicana” or the Council of Sustainable Settlements of the Dominican Republic, is a network that articulates local independent, personal or collective initiatives that with their actions contribute to the personal, ecological and collective regeneration of the spaces where they live or work. CASA is part of larger networks such as the Council of Sustainable Settlements of Latin America, or CASA LATINA, which is also a part of the Global Ecovillage Network, GEN. Orquidea was part of its co-founders in 2017 and has served as one of the Council Directives since its beginnings. Today CASA Dominicana articulates more than 20 projects across the Dominican Republic.
