The GEN Europe forum is a work in progress – thank you for joining us on the adventure.
For discussions and specialized topics we created a members-only discourse forum.
You can sign up on this link: by using the GENMEMBER code during the registration process when prompted.  

We welcome open discussion about all subjects related to ecovillage living and we hope this will be an inspiring, enriching and welcoming space for all those who join. We encourage you to share resources on community-building, tell stories from your ecovillages or visits to communities, ask questions and offer answers. Your input will help us create a valuable and constantly-evolving resource for both ecovillagers and those seeking regenerative ecovillage lifestyles – all on a self-hosted platform, away from corporate social networks.

This site is operated by members of the GEN Europe team and you, the community. If you have any further questions about how things should work here, open a new topic in the site feedback category and let’s discuss! If there’s a critical or urgent issue that can’t be handled by a meta topic or flag, contact us via the staff page.
