At What If: Ecovillage Solutions for Extraordinary Times, GEN Europe brought together renowned experts, visionaries and on-the-ground practitioners to help us make sense of the complex times we live in. Together we explored how ecovillages and intentional communities are awakening to opportunities through the Covid crisis and how together we can transform this moment to create a culture of regeneration and resilience for all.
