We are creating a European Learning Partnership that brings together the expertise of different European organisations for lifelong adult education in the field of social, economical and ecological sustainability, funded by the EU Lifelong Learning Program.
GEN-Africa is the African ecovillage association, promoting social resilience, environmental protection and restoration of nature through the concept of ecovillages as models for sustainable human settlements. We actively support the development of ecovillages and networks in all parts of Africa.
GEN-Africa is a membership organisation that emerged with the support of GEN - Europe which was founded in 1996, and open to a wide range of projects regardless of their political, religious or cultural backgrounds.
The European branch of GEN-Europe (GEN) is assisting inthe emergence of GEN-Africa (www.gen-africa.org) as an independent branch of the global network – there is a lot happening. All over Africa inspiration is being offered to the ecovillage network. In the face of climate change and resource depletion, a network that builds bridges in a spirit of collaboration and mutual respect deserves respect.
