This spring, discover the ecovillages of Europe from your own home. Sit around the (virtual) campfire as community residents tell the stories, cultures and traditions of their homes, answer your questions about what it’s really like to live in community, and get inspired for your next adventure.
Your tour guide? None other than Riccardo Clemente: straight from Italy’s Valley of the Elves, eco-builder, musician, ecovillage expert, and famed cabaret artist at the European Ecovillage Gathering talent shows…Riccardo will bring his inimitable energy and humour to each visit.
Come aboard the ecovillage tour! Find inspiration in regenerative communities, connect with other ecovillage seekers, and Meet the Ecovillages this spring.
Our first tour finds us landing in the Iberian Peninsula, first stop: southernmost Spain. From living and learning centre El Molino de Guadalmesi, Riccardo will lead us to Seville and Los Portales, where the spiritual wisdom of dreams combines with the practical aspects of off-grid rural living. Then we’ll head north all the way to the pre-Pyrenees of Navarra and Arterra Bizimodu, a young and thriving community founded in an abandoned boarding school-turned-hotel.
Each session will be a 1h30 deep dive into a community, with storytelling from the ecovillagers and and plenty of time for questions and conversation.
Your contribution (9 € per session, 22 € for all sessions) will raise funds for the ecovillage to help support them through these challenging times when many community enterprises are struggling due to ongoing lockdown restrictions.
Join the Iberian Experience! You can join individual visits, or take the full tour for a discounted price. Book now! Recordings will be available afterwards for participants.
