At GEN Europe we work with a range of partners who share our vision - from NGOs to international institutions, from local networks to global initiatives. Together we build capacity to effect change at every level as part of the global transition to resilience. Here we present some of our collaborators.

Erasmus Plus banner


GEN-Europe receives from the European Union as part of the Erasmus+ programme, which enables us to run EVS projects, youth exchanges, and trainings in ecovillages. 



Gaia Education

Gaia Education is a UK-based charity that provides sustainability education that promotes thriving communities within planetary boundaries. It offers educational programmes for sustainable development across the world through a rich range programme types - from short online programmes to government-support programmes in the Global South.


GEN-Europe is proud to be a member of ECOLISE - the European Network for Community-Led Initiatives on Climate Change and Sustainability. ECOLISE is an umbrella group encompassing and supporting the many European movements and networks - from ecovillages to permaculture networks to the Transition movement -  that are taking practical local actions to take on global challenges, as part of transition to a more resilient society. 



Earth Charter

The Earth Charter Initiative is a global movement of organizations and individuals that embrace the Earth Charter and use it to guide the transition towards a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. The Charter seeks to inspire in all people a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the whole human family, the greater community of life, and future generations.



Transition Movement

The Transition Movement is an inspiring global movement of communities coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world. Since 2005, the movement has united communities across the globe that are working on local solutions to economic, social and environmental challenges, from the future of work to alternative currencies, from skillshares to mutual support networks.


The Commons Network

The Commons Network is a civil society initiative and think-tank working on a local, national and European level to reimagine Europe as a democratic force for the common good. GEN Europe has participated in the European Commons Assembly, feeding into policy proposals and debates and forging links with other civil society groups.

European Social Fund (ESF)

GEN-Europe receives funds from the European Social Fund. This enables members from Germany and Austria to participate in training to be sociocratic experts. The skills acquired in this training benefit the member organisations through creating efficient organisational structures and meetings 'on eye level', where the contributions of each individual member take centre stage. The project is funded by the ESF and the Federal State of Brandenburg via the Brandenburg Ministry for Labour, Social Affairs, Health, Women and Family (MASGF).

We thank all our partners for their support and for all their vital work!
