The Valley

It’s our goal to contribute to bring back life and work to the abandoned Muga Valley one hour away from Girona, Spain.

The Muga Valley Project came to life in 2020, with the believe that it is urgent and important to explore how we human beings can live and work in harmony with nature, and to see what economic model is serving this belief. The mission of our project is to create a demonstration case in Europe of the transformation of an abandoned valley in Spain into a flourishing rural regenerative economy.

We aim to provide opportunities for business, science and society to regenerate the Muga Valley with a 20+ year perspective. Together with our partners we aim to regenerate over 95k hectares of forest landscape, bringing back life, rural economy and secure future water supplies of the Costa Brava North. Our foundation operates The Muga Valley Campus and The Muga Valley Partnership.

The Muga Valley Campus is a space for collaborative action between academics, innovators, entrepreneurs and funders to explore the future of forest landscapes. The activities of The Campus are: knowledge sharing, research and innovation and ReGen venture building. We are creating a demonstration farm that serves as educational platform and laboratory for our Campus.

The Muga Valley Partnership aims to unite key stakeholders and to co-create a 20y vision for the future of The Valley. This includes a vision for creating community and sense of belonging, land management, a governance system for the Muga watershed, the implementation of regeneration and biodiversity projects.

The Home is serving as the epicenter for co-creating the project together with people from the local villages and our global network. Together we are building partnerships, doing research and executing the various regeneration projects and businesses.

Our dream? In twenty years time from now, we envision healthy and resilient forests, thriving wildlife and drinkable water in the rivers. The landscape regeneration activities have generated jobs for people in the villages. People are living in harmony with themselves and all other living beings in the mountains and forests. Entrepreneurs have created a variety of new local businesses; not only in wildlife tourism, but also in agroforestry, regeneration technology and all kinds of forest foods like medicinal plants, herbs, a variety of nuts, truffles, mushrooms, honey and wild game.

We invite everyone that shares our passion to join us.
