Children’s Programme Open Call

We are thrilled to announce the call for space-holders for this year’s Ecovillage Gathering Children’s Programme! Our mission is to weave an inspiring and co-created experience for the youngest members of our community, and we need your unique talents and energy to make this happen.

At the heart of our Children’s Programme is the principle of co-creation. The children themselves will be in charge of designing their activities and experiences in collaboration with adults, choosing from a list of diverse offerings. They will have full autonomy over the time they wish to spend with the Children’s Programme, empowering them to shape their own magical journey. To make this possible, we need your help! 

Join Us in Creating a BODY MIND SOUL Framework

We are excited to continue putting young life at the center of the gathering. This year, we invite you to contribute to our BODY MIND SOUL framework, encouraging mentorship and mutual care for our youngest ecovillagers.

  • Body: Movement, sports, games, and more.
  • Mind: Group building, scavenger hunts, problem-solving, crafts, etc.
  • Soul: Storytelling, art, bushcraft, and other soul-nourishing activities.

Share Your Gifts

We all bring precious talents and skills with us and have so much to offer to our youngest community members. Whether you are an expert in storytelling, a master of crafts, or passionate about outdoor games, we welcome you to share your gifts!

When submitting your proposal, please specify which age group you would like to reach. Be mindful that the Children’s Programme aims to work with a wide range of ages, from toddlers to teenagers.
