This weekend and next, March 20 – 22 and 27 – 29, and in response to the current situation – join the GEN family online to connect, hear from communities on the ground, and explore the role of ecovillages, regenerative cultures and community design in the face of challenge. We hope to welcome you to a shared online space of connection, hope and inspiration in times when many of us need it more than ever.
We at GEN are reaching out to you in this time of uncertainty when all of us are being affected by the coronavirus – directly or indirectly. Many of us are staying at home and losing work. Those of us living in communities & ecovillages might have the extra security of shared food gardens, mutual care and solidarity. But also, many communities and ecovillages are deeply entwined with visitor streams and facing drastic cuts to their economies.
It’s easy to become disconnected when we face inner fears and outer social distancing. Yet, the coronavirus teaches us more than anything about global intimacy. Regardless of borders and distance, it is being passed on between us with incredible ease and speed. We all share the same air and we all walk the same earth.

As a global family, this is a time to come together, focus on our heart connections and be there for one another. Technology allows us to weave community with one another – we can use our online meetings to practice true togetherness across space and time. Let’s use this extraordinary, globally shared experience to come home to our deeper purpose.

We in GEN have had to cancel face to face events, in the USA, Costa Rica and elsewhere, but we will not cancel our commitment to human connection. Instead, we invite you, the GEN Community to join us for online workshops these coming two weekends, combined with freely accessible interviews and conversations. Also, each person enrolling will receive free access to the GEN Online Summit Package – with fantastic interviews and inspirations to sweeten your time.
Kosha Joubert & Ecovillage founders and leaders in Europe and North America, two of the areas most affected by the Coronavirus, will be leading us on this journey.
  • Live conversations on the impact and response to the coronavirus in leading ecovillages in North America and Europe: What is the role of community in times of global crisis?

  • Cultivating mindfulness and spaciousness in uncertain times: How can we nurture awareness, inner peace and compassion? 

  • Trauma-informed community practices: How can we broaden our resilience and heal in the face of challenges?

  • Global Social Witnessing: How can we presence what is happening instead of absencing or numbing ourselves? 

  • Live conversations on the situation in leading ecovillages in North America and Europe

  • Understanding the unique contribution each of us brings to the puzzle of whole systems design. 

  • Using the Map of Regeneration to explore our strengths and weaknesses in communities and design for abundance.

Also, each person enrolling will receive free access to the GEN Online Summit Package – with 35 hours of inspiring interviews with leading edge thinkers and practitioners - to sweeten your time at home.

Price: Sliding scale of $60 - 90 USD per weekend or $100 - 160 USD for both weekends


Due to the Coronavirus lockdown, we also decided to make the Online Summit Full Package available for purchase once again. Please access the summit website for more information.
