The Power of Community Summit is an entirely free, online experience organized with the goal of catalyzing community, exploring the leading edge of the regenerative future movement and increasing our collective consciousness in a climate changing world. It will take place February 1-10, 2019 and will feature three conversations shared live and discussed worldwide on multiple platforms. To see the full list of speakers and to see which interviews are live at any given time, visit summit.ecovillage.org. To view the videos, receive daily information, updates, and be invited to participate in discussion about the summit, you are invited to register at summit.ecovillage.org.
(Note: Even if you are already on GEN’s main newsletter mailing list or are otherwise subscribed to updates from GEN through email or social media, you will need to register for the Summit specifically on the Summit site to receive access to Summit videos)
You are invited to participate in discussions directly within the comments of the videos themselves, in our dedicated Summit Facebook group, or in person in hubs which will be displayed on the Summit site.
The Power of Community Summit is the very first ever organized by the Global Ecovillage Network, in partnership with Pioneers for Change, an organization with proven success on past summits. The theme of the event is also in coordination with the upcoming Climate Change and Consciousness Conference 2019 to be held at Findhorn in April 2019. For more on that Conference, visit CCC19.org
The Way it Works:
We are excited to welcome 30 speakers who have recorded conversations which will go live, 3 per day, over the course of 10 days February 1-10. Each video will be accessible for a day, and then at the end of the Summit we will offer a package of all the videos for purchase to be viewed at any time. To receive free access to the Summit, you must register at summit.ecovillage.org. Everyone who signs up for the Summit will receive a link to a free ebook: “Ecovillage: 1001 Ways to Heal the Planet” Subscribers should expect to receive multiple email updates a day as the Summit begins. For further questions you are welcome to write to [email protected]
