About us


Our vision is to encourage young people to have a fun experience in community life, where they can slow down, hear the silence, grow awareness, be in balance and giving them a place where they can start to trust themselves.With this encouragement, young people can reconnect with nature, learn to accept others and learn about sustainable and low impact ways of living in ecovillages and rural settings. On this path of transformation, they can get all the support they need and in turn be able to support others and find ways to take care of the planet in their daily life.

Behind this project there is a group of young people with a need to live in a sustainable way with ourselves, our local communities and nature, both in cities and rural areas. We are organizing youth exchanges in ecovillages in Europe, where young people can come together to explore what challenges and opportunities we share regarding sustainability; what can we do to empower ourselves and how can we work together as a generation facing a social and ecological crisis to create sustainable change. We aim to explore what ecovillages are doing to tackle the crisis.
