Peklari is characterised by a kind of „experiential
sustainability“ combined with social egalitarianism … The
whole system ensures the possibility of self-sufficiency as
well as security through the alternative possibilities of
production, as the household does not depend on just one
crop … Local societies adapt to the elements of the
natural environment on which they depend but they also adapt
it to their needs in such a way as to ensure that the
available resources do not run out. Moreover, in time, ways
out of economic and demographic difficulties are found, so
that the equilibrium in local systems is not put at risk.
Technical specialisation, mobility or even migration provide
such solutions.

Vassilis Nitsiakos is Professor at the
