This conference will give participants a deeper understanding of cutting edge developments of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN), focusing on GEN-Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Opportunities will be provided to learn about and practice facilitation methods and pedagogies used during the conference (experiential learning, action learning, participatory learning, incorporating the wisdom and diversity of participants). This year there will be a special focus on the dimension of education.
Ecovillages act as research and training centres for sustainable development within wider society.
The hosting Ecovillage of Tamera serves as a living example and field of practice for the themes of the conference.
The themes of this year’s conference include:
- Collaborations for Sustainability – Inspirations from the Global Ecovillage Network
- Widening networks for Resilience – Broadening the concept of 'Ecovillage'
- Education for Sustainability - GEN-Strategies
