Oil and ancient olive trees. An engine for sustainable development

Nov 24, 2021

Sénia, Spain.

Participatory governance of cultural heritage



The Ancient Olive Trees of the Territorio Sénia project was born as a response to the high concentration of ancient olive trees in the area and the need to preserve them as a very important part of its cultural, historical, landscape, agricultural and environmental heritage. The Mancomunidad Taula del Sénia, a local public entity formed by 27 Valencian, Catalan and Aragoneses town councils with more than 111,000 inhabitants in 2,070 km2 joined forces in 2006 with the Territorio Sénia Association. Together, the public and private sectors are conserving all the ancient olive trees of the Territorio Sénia in order to make this entire initiative a sustainable and resilient practice.
