Manolya Balci

I am a certified internal auditor with consultancy and project development background from Istanbul-Turkey (My business profile can be found on Linkedin). I have got knowledge and experience on following subjects: project planning & management, risk analysis & risk management, accounting, finance, fraud, business development, sales&marketing, advertising, graphic design. I live in a 20 million people city and I see myself and my friends falling sick...City life is consuming our souls and life energy every second but that’s where we get job...We breath in dirt, we eat garbage, we think garbage and we produce garbage (even in the name of art...). Everyone I know’s whether into depression pills or drugs/alcohol...I see natural and healthy is being a luxury and I’m afraid it is being something that only few can buy. Our education system has paralysed us, crippled us and turned us into useless, soulless walking deads...Since I’ve been a fraud auditor, I notice almost every service and product we buy is defective I see governments and many companies are contributing this wrong-going. I have come to understand these and I don't want to put another brick in the wall. I want to contribute my time, my energy and my skills to something I believe and I believe in Ecovillage systems. These words I think summarise my point of view: "I am not a pacifist like Bertrand Russell who thought that by protesting, creating pacifists we can save the universe. No protest can save it, no pacifist can save it. Only one thing is possible: your making this universe more and more beautiful, so beautiful that existence becomes absolutely incapable of thinking to destroy it.” Osho. PS: I am not a rastafarian or hippie
