The GEN Ecovillage Summit is an entirely free, online experience with the focus on ecovillages and communities from the GEN regions to showcase how ecovillages contribute to the mitigation of the climate crisis and function as resilient communities of practice under the conditions of environmental breakdown. Have you registered yet for the Summit? If not, please do so first here: summit2021.ecovillage.org
To take the experience of the Summit to the next level, we ask:
Do you want to host or join a space for the people around you to come together and share what the Summit brings up together?
Do you want to host or join a round table for dialogue, inspiration, and sacred activism to emerge?
This is the purpose of Hubs. A Hub can take many forms – watching together with friends; arranging dinner parties and sharing circles with neighbours; public events in the local community hall; and other forms you might wish to create. A Hub could choose to run one or two weekend events, from 9-11 and/or 14-15 April 2021, or simply offer a single day of viewing the Summit together. Or you could come together in your community to watch an interview every evening. You can shape your Hub into the form that suits you.

As GEN, we understand the power of community and see that each such meeting or event can become the seed for a transformational local action plan, a bold new project or the incubation of the next level of community solidarity.
We will support you by sending out daily topics for conversation and facilitation guidelines when the summit begins.
You can also join the Facebook group where there will be space for discussion and sharing.
