Rosa Cotta  

Areas of Environmental Action:

Land, Poverty, Sustainable Consumption 

Summary of Achievements:

Rose Cotta, founder member of the Soroptimist Club of Barcelona, acquired a four-hectare area of agricultural land in Catalunya Province in Spain, which had been farmed for 12 years using chemical pesticides and fertilizers. The aim was to convert the use of conventional non-organic techniques to organic methods. As a result, natural balance returned, with soil life improving and wild plants, insects, birds and mammals coming back to the area, and it has become a success in environmentally-sound and sustainable agricultural development.
