Ecovillage living can be the solution to multiple crises of deforestation, climate change, housing, economic crises and even the vast crises of human displacement currently occurring.
As well as regenerating landscapes and providing enjoyable hardship and luxurious simplicity, and affordable co-operative housing, we will explore how ecovillages can provide support in crises and collaborate with displaced people to transform refugee camps into ecovillages and centers of empowerment.
