Some of our partnerships:
"Gaia Trust is a Danish-based charitable association founded in 1987 on the initiative of Ross and Hildur Jackson.
One of its major projects results was the establishment of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN).
It is supporting GEN on a regular basis since its founding."
"Gaia Education promotes a holistic approach to education for sustainable development by developing curricula for sustainable community design.
While drawing upon best practices within ecovillages worldwide, Gaia Education works in partnership with universities, ecovillages, government and non-government agencies and the United Nations."
"Living Routes' mission is to create opportunities to live and learn within human-scale communities that are consciously striving to live well and lightly.
By offering positive visions and "stories" for humanity and the planet, ecovillages offer ideal "campuses" for students to explore possible futures, both in the world and in their own lives.
Living Routes programs challenge you to grow on academic, professional and personal levels.
Students and faculty together create a learning community within the living community of the Ecovillage or indigenous community."
"The Ecovillages Newsletter is a free, bimonthly newsletter in order to encourage and inspire ecovillage projects with news about what ecovillages are doing worldwide.
People seem to love photos and stories about how others are succeeding in good work. Ecovillages will bring you stories about successful projects in every issue, and practical, how-to information, too."
"Permaculture Magazine helps you live a more natural, healthy and environmentally friendly life. Permaculture Magazine offers tried and tested ways of creating flexible, low cost approaches to sustainable living.
Permaculture Magazine is published quarterly for enquiring minds and original thinkers everywhere.
Each issue gives you practical, thought provoking articles written by leading experts as well as fantastic eco-friendly tips from readers!"
