KEYNOTES, TRAINING & WORKSHOPS

  • ECO VILLAGE DESIGN

    The Ecovillage Design Cards illustrate and distill years of experimentation and learning within the Global Ecovillage Network, and our commitment to spreading community-led pathways to regeneration and thriving on planet Earth.

    The cards are divided into five groups - four dimensions of sustainability (social, culture, ecology and economy) arranged around one central path (the process of transformation). Together, they make up a tool for play, reflection, dialogue, learning, research and design - for individuals, organisations and communities.

    During this empowering workshop you will receive inspiration and guidelines for some ways of using the cards, and will have opportunity to experience their power. You will be able to take this tool into your life in order to map the status quo and identify leverage points for future development.
     

  • FUTURE MODELS

    We will have futurologists provide a glimpse into what is coming about in terms of social tools & technology which may dramatically accelerate the idealised world of the global ecovillage in ways never before possible.
     

  • COLLECTIVE PURPOSE

    Often, in community, we tend to label and limit ourselves and others. In this workshop, we will explore how to see afresh, and sense what is emerging on the horizon of our lives. Drawing on Kosha and Robin’s extensive experience of living in community we will create a highly experiential session that will help you navigate and grow beyond the ordinary.
