“Ecovillages are urban or rural communities of people who strive to integrate a supportive social environment with a low-impact way of life. To achieve this, they integrate various aspects of ecological design, permaculture, ecological building, green production, alternative energy, community building practices, and much more. Ecovillages are living models of sustainability. They represent an effective, accessible way to combat the degradation of our social, ecological, and spiritual environments.
“The idea of gathering as the younger generations of the Global Ecovillage Network emerged several years ago and now they are active in every GEN region. Each region operates with its own focus and specific goals. NextGEN are united by their youthful spirits, love of the ecovillage movement and a longing to be part of creating the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.”
