There exist expositions, manners of life and ways of doing that they propose a relation more balanced between the human being and the planet. The majority of they, nevertheless, they neither have been developed by big companies nor have presupposed governmental high places. In many cases it is a question, on the contrary, of anonymous persons organized in networks, of professionals that they develop new systems out of the market or of individuals who have decided to act for his account. We are called them Agronautas.
