The Global Ecovillage Network celebrates and honours the wisdom, inspiration and guidance that indigenous and traditional communities around the world have to offer for the design of self-sustaining, resilient human settlements. Many traditional and indigenous communities have decided for their communities officially to be recognised as ecovillages. The main shift happening here is one to consciously designing their own pathway into the future.

We will share examples of such communities from around the world, where cultural heritage is valued, and woven into all four dimensions of sustainability that ecovillage transition programs engage in (social, culture, ecology and economy). Together, we will experience the Ecovillage Playing Cards: a visual and playful access to design for sustainability and climate adaptation and mitigation.
