This is GEN regenerative response to crisis!
The term EmerGENcies was coined by Alfonso Flacquer of GEN Europe in 2013 after he invited initiatives responding to emergencies to join together and build on this practice. Several ecovillages followed this call and years later, EmerGENcies is now a programme of GEN, recognizing the growing response to disasters and displacement using ecovillage design and solutions in many parts of the world.
We know that the field of humanitarian assistance and recovery is complex and delicate and not much in relation to sustainability has been systematised in terms of knowledge so far. The GEN team did a survey, mapping the initiatives, solutions, and approaches developed within the network and partners (in all regions), and systematised the practices with the conceptual references of the area. This manual is the result of this and GEN’s contribution to the field for now and is open to adaptation and evolution in the future.
Please note that this is a purchase for a Digital Download (you will get the PDF file, not the printed manual shipped to you). You are welcomed to print the manual by yourself afterwards.
We offer our manuals for a price of 5GBP – however, if this is too high for you, please reach out to us ([email protected]) and we will find a different solution! We really want the manuals to be of benefit to the network and our growing community of changemakers and do not want money to be a barrier.
