Sawadi, charming ecolodge in southern Morocco

Philippe Ferrer Mora

I was born in Bordeaux, France, where I lived until I settle in Sawadi in Skoura palm grove in 2005. My professionnal life has always been varied and engaging. My previous work was about advising industrial and service companies in preparation for improvment projects (management, quality or environment standards).

I was also teaching quality management at Bordeaux business school as well as working as an auditor in quality and environment for public bodies.

For me, Sawadi's domain is an ideal application ground for sustainability. Nowadays, this concept is on trend, I was personnally interested sooner (middle of the 90s) because it matched my believes and convictions.

Being able to share those ideas and demonstrate them in practice with people from worldwide is a true gift.
