Join Eco Dharma’s founder , Chantal Di Donato, for a weekend of education and fun, as she participates in one of the most prestigious sustainability conferences in Portugal! You can spend the weekend enjoying an amazing B&B experience at Eco-Dharma and join the beautiful conference in Paredes de Coura and Quinta das Aguias.

CouraVeg is a non-profit annual conference, aimed at creating a forum to discuss the benefits of sustainable living, focused on the pillars of vegetarianism: environmental and animal protection, health and economics.

During the event, a multidisciplinary panel of speakers, scientists, activists, politicians and other experts, from all over the world, discuss the impact of human behaviour on climate change, natural resource depletion, biodiversity loss, public health, animal welfare and other ethical issues.

Eco Dharma is very much aligned with the topics discussed at CouraVeg and their purpose and hence the marriage of a weekend stay and participation at this amazing conference!
