Ecovillage Training - 50 years of embodied knowledge and wisdom.
9 February to 9 March, 2013
Gibsone, Gabrielle Hamm & Nadasree Georgete Gadas
There is an increasing
and urgent global need for viable, sustainable
human settlements. Ecovillages provide environmental,
social, economic and spiritual sustainability,
and an enhanced quality of life for all. Ecovillage
communities are cohesive social structures,
united by common social and/or spiritual values.
Working with the simple principle of not taking
more away from the Earth than one gives back,
ecovillages are consciously diminishing their
ecological footprint. Ecovillage principles
apply equally to urban and rural settings, to
both developing and over-developed countries.
The Findhorn Ecovillage Experience provides a practical forum
for learning, and for developing action plans.
It draws on the experience and expertise developed
within the Findhorn Ecovillage over the past
50 years, as well as on other local and international
Findhorn Ecovillage has the lowest ecological
footprint for any community in the industrialised
world, just half the UK national average.
