Democratic Republic of Congo delivers its annual Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) course

The GEN Democratic Republic of Congo network (GEN DRC) just delivered its annual Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) course in Mingadi, approximately 1 hour outside Kinshasa. With the support of Vodacom, this two-week course provided training for 44 participants from 4 villages and was one of the first steps towards developing an ecovillage demonstration centre for the DRC.

This event was the culmination of a very busy six months for GEN DRC and their lead organisation, Luc Lutala and his team from Espoir Pour Tous. Despite a challenging time for the country with its first peaceful transition of power since independence and yet an escalation of violence in parts of the country, Espoir Pour Tous has been working as part of a new consortium to implement large-scale change.
