Next Generation of Ecovillages

What is NextGEN-Europe?

NextGEN-Europe is the youth movement and arm of the European Global Ecovillage Network (GEN-Europe). NextGEN connects youth with the ecovillage movement and empowers them along with those already there, to build a more beautiful world for our generation, and those to come. NextGEN is by youth, for youth.

NextGEN-Europe was brought into the place it is today through a series of meetings over a period of three-four years.  From Tamera (Portugal) in 2011 to Zegg (Germany) in 2012, Schweibenalp (Switzerland) in 2013 and then back to Zegg again in 2014. We look forward to next year in Findhorn (Scotland). Alongside this growth and sometimes even jumping ahead of it, the NextGEN idea has spread throughout the world.  From South-American Nomadic caravans, to young Eco-Educators touring through schools throughout parts of Asia. From art projects on the streets of Kinshasa, the Kibera slums in Nairobi all the way to North American, German and even Scottish/Italian/Portugese Intentional Communities and Ecovillages, NextGEN has become an infectious physical dream calling the young people of the world, who know, to it.

NextGEN currently has active-ists in every continent (except Antarctica), almost every country in Europe, spreading through the states in the USA and roving about throughout Central and South-America.  Everyday it seems someone from a new African country speaks up or we bump into a new person on the street who have heard of it and know about us.
