Solution Library

We face many challenges in our time. At the same time, there are so many solutions out there and so many people eager to implement them! The Solution Library connects these two. It creates a simple access interface, with clear routes leading users to the information they are searching for. The aim is to make solutions for the transition to sustainability universally accessible.

Community Sustainability Assessment

The Global Ecovillage Network is developing the concept of sustainability auditing. The aim being to provide measuring rods for individuals and for existing villages and communities to compare their current status with ideal goals for ecological, social, cultural and economic sustainability. In addition, acting as learning instruments - pointing out actions aspiring individuals and communities can take to become more sustainable. In this context the Global Ecovillage Network has created the Community Sustainability Assessment tool CSA.

GEN Sites

GEN Sites is the online networking platform of the Global Ecovillage Network. A multitude of features support dynamic interaction and collaborative project development. It includes events, news and projects as well as a forum and marketplace.

GEN Database

The GEN Database gives a clean interface to view and manage Projects and Events in our online community platform. It provides access to the same data that can be accesses through GEN Sites, however without the social features. It focuses on providing a clean and structured experience.
