Happy Earth Day!

At the Global Ecovillage Network, every day is Earth Day. 

Regeneration is the perspective that we can restore the Earth's ecosystems, through principles, solutions, and communities that serve to rebalance.

Will you join GEN in this vision to spread Ecovillages?

Here are some of our best tools and learning resources for you to enjoy!


Play with  Ecovillage Principles

Ecovillage Design Cards are a tool for play, reflection, dialogue, learning, and design – for individuals, groups, organisations and communities.

Cards are divided into the four dimensions of sustainability (ecology, economy, social, cultural) and arranged around whole systems design.

This beautifully photographed and designed set of Cards arrives in a nice case with instructions, and is
now available in 6 languages and 3 sizes!
