The idea is to show you the relevance of the use of natural resources in the economy. 1) Geothermal Station generates 22,0% of electricity in the Azores,  35,9% in the Island of São Miguel and 8,8% in Terceira Island. Where goes the rent of the Resource? Does it have an impact on the price of electricity? What is the effect on the economy? What is the value added of knowledge?; 2) Furna de Água, shows the beginning of the water supply system depended on the land use. How can farmers produce water? 3) Caminho das Bestas, show the possibility of the islands being inhabited for some periods before the Portuguese and Flemish Settlers of the XV Century; 4) Caldeira de Guilherme Moniz with wild bulls and laursilvae? What is the role in the local economy and for the cycle of water? What can we learn from the interaction between local festivities, cuisine and sustainable development?
