Global Ecovillage Network





Zonca is currently a member of RIVE Italia. We are registered as an 'ecovillage under construction'. (Member #502). We are also on our way to becoming full members of GEN Europe, with our application pending. In the meantime: Our page on the GEN website.

The Global Ecovillage Network envisions a world of empowered citizens and communities, designing and implementing pathways to a regenerative future, while building bridges of hope and international solidarity. Imagine a world living abundantly, while within its limits. A world that is regenerating rather than depleting the environment, and where cooperation and connection is rewarded. GEN aims to create such a world by spreading the physical and cultural technology of ecovillages.

GEN is more than just a network of communities —whatever that means— it is above all an organisation dedicated to improving quality of life and prospects for the whole planet. At GEN 2018, a global gathering, participants from communities around the world will be offered workshops and lectures designed specifically to promote healing and insight, to share skills and knowledge necessary to transforming obstacles to cooperation and connection. These are part of a range of skills and insights for creating a sustainable world. The GEN website offers a wide range of resources for those who wish to read up on, share or train to improve their skills and get involved in their own communities, whether urban or rural.

In addition, GEN offers a range of volunteer opportunities both within its own organisation and in connected communities.
