Projects GEN Europe and its members are developing, participating in and leading different projects, aligned with our vision and mission. Here you can find an overview of our projects, and find out how your organisation can connect to partners via the Project Pool
BLOOM: The BLOOM project connects a consortium of European organisations working on bioeconomy with a grant from the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation fund. As communication and dissemination partner, GEN Europe will be spreading the word about the bioeconomy and showcasing ecovillage examples of its possibilities and benefits.
Many GEN Europe members are accredited under the Erasmus+ scheme to apply for project funding, and are working on projects in the Project Pool. The purpose of the Project Pool is to provide an overview of initiatives currently being developed within GEN, to assist more organisations to take part and to make it easier for applicant organisations to match with partners. If you're working on projects, or would like to become a project partner, request access to the Project Pool and update it with your needs and progress here.
CLIPS Community Learning Incubator: CLIPS is a solution oriented programme to guide community-led projects in their initial steps – and for existing initiatives that struggle with problems or simply need revitalisation. The purpose of CLIPS is to suggest and explain a framework for approaching community development. It also points out specific tools found useful by existing community-led projects.
The CLIPS programme is the output of the two-year Erasmus+ funded project “Sustainable Community Incubator Partnership Program” (SCIPP), which linked ecovillagers and community leaders from nine countries.
YouthLeader - Bridgedale360: Bridgedale360 is a fun and free online toolkit for youth workers to help inspire young people to live sustainably and become active responsible citizens. It includes games, interactive workshops, experiential activities and much more - a one-stop shop for sustainability education.
Inspired by the knowledge and experiences of the global ecovillage movement, this EU-funded project connected seven partner organisations from seven countries to create an online toolbox to promote youth involvement in sustainability initiatives.
Resilient and Ecological Approaches for Living Sustainably: The REALS project aims to increase learning, awareness and access to information about sustainable lifestyles, waste reduction and sustainable resource management in the Baltic Sea region - but its resources are applicable to any region.
