A Movement for lived sustainability

GEN consists of a constantly expanding network of intentional comĀ­munities and ecovillages bridging all cultures and continents. 
GEN envisions the emergence of a diverse yet shared global pool of wisdom for sustainable living. 
GEN believes that the most underutilised resource we have is the good intentions and creativity of citizens and our willingness to make a difference.
GEN promotes the building of community and solidarity as core to transition to resilience.
GEN-Europe promotes the development of sustainable settleĀ­ments in EuropeAfrica and the Middle East.

Gen-Europe is currently supporting the emergence of GEN-Africa as an independent network in order to make more visible the dynamic and impressive work already being done on the ground all over Africa. more
