Ecovillage Training 2003

On a global level there is an increasing and urgent need for positive models of viable, sustainable human settlements. ’Ecovillages’ or ’sustainable communities’ address this need, providing sustainability not only on environmental terms, but also socially, economically and spiritually.

The ecovillage model is a conscious response to the problem of how to move the planet towards a society ofsustainable communities. Its principles can be applied equally to urban and rural settings, and to developingand over-developed countries. The Ecovillage model provides solutions to human and social needs, whilst protecting the environment and offering an enhanced quality of life for all.

An ecovillage is a community of between 50 and 2000 people united by a common ecological, social and/or spiritual perspective. Working with the simple principle of not taking from the Earth more than one gives back, ecovillages are potentially sustainable indefinitely.

The training is based at the Findhorn Foundation’s demonstration ecovillage is in 8 separate modules, which may be attended as a whole or separately. It is a capacity building programme, designed to make optimum use of the information available from the Foundation’s Ecovillage Project, and to provide a practical forum for learning, and for developing action plans.

The Ecovillage Training is designed for those who wish to be involved in shifting humankind towards a more sustainable existence. It will serve individuals involved in green issues and in building and sustaining communities ; students and professionals in architectural, engineering and building careers ; permaculture and horticultural researchers ; alternative technologists ; business people interested in ethical development ; local and central government officers, members of NGOs and CBOs.

We invite you to join the ecovillage movement, a global movement that is uniting North and South, East and West in a common agenda. Thousands of individuals and hundreds of Ecovillage initiatives and existing ecovillages have joined the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) since its creation in 1995, becoming what has been called the ’Habitat Revolution’.

This program is coordinated by May East, Craig Gibsone and members of the community
