Ecovillage Excellency Award, 2014,
Goes to Taneeb Farm/Global Campus, Palestine, and Aurora Community, Romania
Since this year the Ecovillage Excellency award is split into a European and an international project, with each of the projects receiving 1500 Euros. The international project will be awarded at the Ecovillage Summit in December, in Senegal, Africa.
