Life-Changing Sustainability Education Courses
What if society was designed sustainably around our diverse needs as people on a living planet?
Ecovillages are residential communities around the world that design this intention into how they operate.
The Global Ecovillage Network exists to support and further these ecovillages and what they stand for. GEN is here to empower people to learn about, connect to, and build ecovillages — to create a more sustainable world!
Ecovillages develop new and practice ancient ways of living more sustainably.
What is sustainability? Ecovillages cooperatively design for ecological, economic, social, and cultural vitality.
GEN cultivates this holistic, cooperative, and systemic approach to sustainability.
We know the word sustainability has been overused by marketing and has not been well enough defined.
GEN aims to change this — to reclaim and redefine this concept to include a holistic regenerative approach.
Learn about regenerative design in our online Sustainability Education Courses and Workshops!
