If you’re an ecovillage community or project that’s looking to list your project on the GEN Ecovillage Map and Database, we have prepared a step-by-step guide on how to do so. Please follow the instructions below:
Step 1: Register your personal account on ecovillage.org
Go to ecovillage.org
If you already have an account – enter your details, if not – create a new one.
This can be a personal account or the account of the community. However we advise you to create a common account so that the community can always access it even when there is a change in members
Step 2: Add your project
We want to register the ecovillage/community as a project in the GEN database. In order to do so, you need to log in your account (that you’ve created above), then go to https://ecovillage.org/projects/ and choose “Add ecovillage” as the photo below
Step 3 – Add details
After clicking on Add ecovillage, you should see the screen like this, where you can add all the detailed information about your ecovillage/community (the more detailed the better)
Step 4: Finish and wait for approval
After you are done with this step, the website will take you to the next step. After your registration is done, the GEN team will check your information before publishing it. Once your profile is published, it should look like this example, under the tab Ecovillage
From then on, you can always come back and update your info when needed.
Congratulations on adding your community or project to our website! We are looking forward to having you listed on our website so our growing audience could easily find your community and projects. We hope this will foster more collaborations and interaction between people that are engaging in ecovillages and regeneration!
