We invite you to celebrate possibilities, solutions and connections at the 2017 GEN-European Conference at Ängsbacka!
Brace yourselves for the 21st edition of GEN Europe’s summer conference, the yearly gathering where the inspired and the inspiring come together. From July 16th - 20th, come surf the good vibes, bask in the long summer light and soak up the magic of Ängsbacka, a renown festival venue and Ecovillage in Western Sweden. This year’s theme ‘Conscious Happiness: Living the Future Today’ promises a rich programme relevant to these interesting times. In an era of uncertain ecological and political futures, Robert Hall, GEN Europe’s Council President, invites participants to “come and network with Europe’s grassroots change-makers. Join us to learn ways of increasing happiness while being of greater service to humanity and the planet.” We will explore the themes of “Solidarity, Resilience and Hope” in workshops, demonstrations, and with invited guests, including keynote speakers Charles Eisenstein and Helena Norbert-Hodge. We are also excited to feature the second edition of the Ecovillage Sustainable Technologies Expo, a demonstration lab for sustainable innovations developed in ecovillages around Europe.
