Why Live Streaming?
The ecovillage movement is succeeding and spreading as shown by the increased attendance at the European GEN conference year on year. This year, on the 20th anniversary of the launch of the Global Ecovillage Network we used our innovative spirit to upgrade the existing conference model to make the Summit available to you in your home community via the internet. This helps to to relieve the strain on the host community of Findhorn, and supports sustainability by recognising the high cost of travel, both financial and environmental.
What are GEN+20 HUBs?
You are also warmly invited to create GEN+20 HUBs. HUBs are venues, connected to the central GEN+20 Summit in Findhorn via live-stream, with access to the streamed activities of the Summit, information and the schedule of events. Hubs will be provided with the outline of the Summit and are invited to simply enjoy or create their own programme to follow the energy and emergence of the Summit in whatever way they deem appropriate. For example you could invite all your neighbors, friends and family to come over to your house or community center, watch the live stream together and talk about sustainability in your local area.
HUBs are based on the values of personal growth, community, and earth-care.
“In Slovenia we don’t have a proper ecovillage yet. Still, we sense that we can serve ecovillage values and spread the GEN family in the best possible manner by hosting a GEN+20 HUB in our own community, and inviting people from the neighbouring countries. In this way we can have many people sharing the inspiration of genuine community. We are still a newborn community – so if we can do it, anybody can do it!” – Nara Petrovic (HUB in Slovenia)
We look forward to welcoming you online!
