Since 2014 mentors of NextGENOA have been facilitating workshops and supporting youth from all over the region to step into their power and find their calling on the planet.

Here are a few that we have done.
Gaia Calling: A gathering of young earth warriors for the first time in February 2019 at Gaia Ashram, Thailand.
Ecovillage Design Education 2016, 2018 and 2019 in Gaia Ashram, Thailand
NextGENOA meeting in 2018 & NextGENOA Networking Conference 2019
Participation in GENOA Gathering 2018 in Thailand & Online Gathering 2020
Documentary projects: sustainable movement in Asia (on-going)
