History and chronology
In the spring of 1990, the Huehuecóyotl ecovillage in Morelos hosted the "Meeting on Nature of the Guardians of Sacred and Scientific Traditions" where representatives of spiritual movements, indigenous nations, ecology, scientists and artists participated... their strength generated the vision that gave rise to the production of the first Guardians of the Earth Council of Visions held in Temoaya, State of Mexico in 1991. Little by little we have become a movement and organized the Council in different bioregions of the country and Latin America .
Over the years, the Council has been enriched by the active participation of permaculture groups, consensus groups, and bioregional ecologists who, since 1984, have held about twelve events called the Continental Bioregional Congress in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. In turn, the model of the ecological camp created by the "Villages of Peace" of the Council of Visions, has been a great influence for the realization of regional events, youth meetings and festivals in Mexico and in other countries.
