An invitation to join us

GEN Australia Event

Global Ecovillage Network Australia (GEN) invites you to join us in Tasmania from November 4th-6th to explore ‘Building and Connecting Communities’

A 3-day sharing experience at Tasman Ecovillage, Nubeena (one hour from Hobart airport) to Create and Grow an Ecovillage/Intentional Community Network in Australia.

Invitation is extended to 1-2 representatives of every identified Australian intentional community - from ecovillages, co-houses, and transition towns - to join us in Tasmania in November for this special event.

This is an opportunity to share and learn from each other what an effective Australia-wide organisation could provide to enhance and grow our lived Eco community experiences. It’s a chance to both connect with similar projects and communities around Australia as well as link in with the world wide Global Ecovillage Network.

Some potential benefits of an effective national network:

  • Connecting and sharing our experiences and resources
  • Broader networking opportunities
  • Education on latest tools, methods and technology from around the world within the ‘ecovillage’ and intentional community movement through GEN International
  • Eco-tourism opportunities for all communities
  • Effective communication internally - and with international bodies
  • Lobbying - planning, policy etc
  • Assistance with establishing communities
  • Education platforms and opportunities

COST: $295pp – includes all vegetarian meals and 3 night’s twin-share onsite accommodation
