Established in 1979, Bagnaia’s core intentions are to live self-sufficiently, practice ecological care, and support positive societal transformations through peacework and social justice.
Guided by these values, our 2019 gathering will place attention upon practical participation, action and solidarity, so we may stand together strengthened by our unity and diversity, to address the great challenges of our time.
The European Ecovillage Conference 2019 (GEN Europe Conference) is an annual gathering of ecovillagers and seekers from across Europe and the world who are active or curious in the ecovillage movement.
In 2019, we gather in La Comune di Bagnaia, a longstanding intentional community in Tuscany to inspire ecovillagers, changemakers, seekers and global citizens across Europe and beyond with the innovative solutions being lived in our communities right now!
Expect to be inspired!
Share, participate and celebrate with hundreds of pioneers from across the European ecovillage networks.
By nurturing practical action through hands-on learning, participation and network-building, we will ultimately generate a ripple-effect of post-gathering action, community-building and wider healing that will catalyse the more beautiful world towards which we are all aspiring.
It is a pleasure to be able to offer the benefits of living in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, yet so near the the treasures of Siena and Florence and the thousands of small hill towns surrounding us ,each with its own surprises.
As we invite both a diversity of ecovillagers and activists from allied movements to inspire and create space for ongoing conversation and action around these critical themes, we invite participation in order to align our efforts for the emerging regenerative culture.
