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.
