Global Ecovillage Network Australia

Global Ecovillage Network Australia is a network of ecovillages, indigenous communities, intentional communities, eco-projects, co-housing communities, transition initiatives, like-minded individuals and value aligned organisations in Australia.

GEN Australia is a national network of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN), a network of ecovillages (intentional, traditional and indigenous), grassroots initiatives and civil society organisations that was founded in 1995 with the purpose to support communities and community-led projects which make an active contribution to environmental protection and the conservation of natural resources through an ecological low-impact way of living.

GEN Australia educates, networks and supports regenerative living solutions that includes co-housing, urban eco-neighbourhoods, ecovillages and indigenous communities. We aim expand on the initiatives of our network by collaborating with individuals, communities and organisations, both indigenous and non-Indigenous, across Australia in creating regenerative cultures and lifestyles. 

An ecovillage is an intentional, indigenous or urban community that is consciously designed through locally owned participatory processes in all four Areas of Regeneration (social, culture, ecology and economy integrating into whole systems design) to restore and regenerate social and natural environments.

GEN Australia focuses on the needs of future generations for a safe and healthy planet to inhabit. The good intentions and creativity of citizens and our willingness to make a difference are some of the most underutilized resources. GEN Australia aims helps unleash this potential. Get involved and unleash your potential so you can be part of the solution!
