GENNA is the Ecovillage Network of North America and is active primarily in the United States in Canada.
GENNA is still in the process of defining itself: the emergence of CASA created a network specifically for Latin America, altering the landscape of the former umbrella organization, the Ecovillage Network of the Americas.
GENOA - Oceania & Asia
GENOA, established in 1997 by Max Lindegger, is a network of people, ecovillages and organisations in Oceania & Asia region.A member of the Global Ecovillage Network, GENOA promotes ecovillage living where people live in a sustainable way, with dignity, in harmony with each other, and with nature
The Global Ecovillage Network is a truly global organization. Our work spans across six different regions - GEN-Africa, GEN-Europe, GENOA in Oceania & Asia, GENNA in North America, CASA in Latin America and NextGEN for the future generations of the planet. Internationally we coordinate through GEN International.
GEN-Europe is the European 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 Europe.
CASA emerged in January 2012 from the convergence of movements and networks towards sustainable living and was given the task of making visible the movement of sustainable settlements in Latin America. CASA connects organizations, settlements, communities, eco-districts, towns in transition, and enterprises that drive the proliferation of intentional projects as benchmarks to a life of regenerative relationship with the planet and among humans.
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.
NextGEN is the youth movement of the Global Ecovillage Netowork and is now active in all regions of GEN. NextGEN was started by youth at the GEN Conference in Findhorn in 2005 and had a second resurgence in 2012. We have since grown to include groups on every continent and are an integral part of the growing ecovillage movement.
