What is an ecovillage?
View this email in your browser
From traditional villages in Africa, and small footprint intentional communities in Europe, to Buddhist ashrams in Asia; from urban ecovillages and carbon sequestration farms in North America to eco-caravans and permaculture projects in Latin America, the diversity of what we call “ecovillage” is not easy to pin down.

The sheer range of expression seems to be part of what lies at the core of ecovillages!Currently, the Global Ecovillage Network is not only growing, with more and more communities joining every month, but also growing more together. With GEN reaching out to governments, local authorities and the broader public, we are consolidating our message, making visible the recognisable patterns that help to transfer the ecovillage experience to new contexts. Some of our upcoming newsletters are part of that process. In this issue we are starting with the question: ‘What is an ecovillage?’

Please read on for the definition and about the three types of ecovillages: traditional, intentional, and urban.

We hope you enjoy the read,
