An ecovillage is an intentional, traditional or urban community that is consciously designed through locally owned participatory processes in all four Areas of Regeneration (social, culture, ecology and economy) to regenerate social and natural environments.
Within GENOA, ecovillage refers to intentional communities, indigenous and traditional villages and communities, faith-based and spiritual communities and urban eco-neighbourhoods – and where people identify themselves with an intention to live in a holistic sustainable manner. There are many projects, networks, like-minded organisations, government agencies and alliances within the GENOA network who help support the transition of ecovillages in our region, and in integrating ecovillage principles and solutions into the wider community.
