Ecovillage Development Programmes radically reform current development practices, putting communities at the heart of the process. The full and inclusive participation of communities on the ground in the conception and implementation of activities – together with the sharing and transferring of expertise and grounded experience – will be the key to success. To further aid this process, GEN is delighted to announce the publication of its first Consultancy Brochure in this newsletter.  GEN Consultancy seeks to share some of the world’s best practices in the field of community sustainability and resilience through a highly skilled and diverse network of expert consultants.The solutions profiled here are a sample of the wealth of knowledge and innovative solutions available worldwide and harnessed by GEN’s consultants.

Please pass on this newsletter to friends, media, communities and initiatives in your networks who are interested in ecovillages and encourage them to subscribe on!

In community,
Kosha Joubert, Leila Dregger and Jenefer Marquis
