Amherst, MA – From September 7-10, NextGEN is hosting an event for participants to explore pathways towards creating a purpose-filled life and communities of hope. Ecovillage Pathways will be held at Sirius Community, a 30+ year old ecovillage in the foothills of Western Massachusetts. This will be NextGEN’s fourth year hosting events that bring together a diverse community of changemakers from across North America. NextGEN is a youth initiative born out of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN).
Ecovillage Pathways is open to people of all ages and backgrounds who have an earnest desire to create meaningful change in the world. Do you want to wake up each day filled with purpose and connection? Do you crave a job that meets your own needs, while healing our planet? Do you desire to learn from thousands of regenerative communities around the world? This event could be where your journey begins.
The event has three main focuses:
Pathways of Possibility
Get plugged into the movement of thousands of organizations, communities and projects making meaningful change around the world. Our NextGEN facilitators are leaders in sustainable community projects. Participants will be directly networked with key opportunities to support a unique life journey.
Pathways of Inspiration
Sirius Community is a handcrafted village nestled amongst forest and permaculture gardens. During the event, participants will live and dine with residents of Sirius, even volunteering during the community work party on Saturday. Enjoy your time living in this inspiring setting!
Pathways of Community
A key focus of this event will be in deepening connection with fellow participants. The event size is limited to 40 attendees in order to create a strong container for group cohesion and personal transformation. NextGEN facilitators have been trained in Ecovillage Design Education, and teach workshops on a variety of topics related to conscious living and activism.
