Ecovillage Ambassadors serve as knowledgeable points of contact in intentional communities around the globe. This is a network of young people ecstatic about bringing more youth to their ecovillages, through work exchanges, internships, and community experiences. Ambassadors also help to build an online presence for their respective communities, blasting stories of possibility and connecting to youth in the language of this generation.
These inspiring individuals have applied to participate in our program and have been selected for their enthusiasm, accessibility, and commitment to fulfilling the role of an Ambassador. They are young people (under 35), who are currently living in an ecovillage in North America and are enthusiastic about connecting other youth with their home. They work to update their community's website, set up work exchange programs for low-income visitors, host educational events, and create fun gatherings at their ecovillage.
Ecovillage Ambassadors have the entire NextGEN support team behind them to help broadcast their ecovillage. We direct young people their way and help them create a profile on our Ecovillage Ambassador's Page. Ambassadors also have the opportunity to attend Ecovillage Ambassador gatherings and other NextGEN events throughout the year, to connect with young communitarians from around the country.
How to get in touch? You can find an Ambassador in a community near you by checking out our Ambassador Profile Page. To respect our Ambassador's privacy we are only giving out contact information to direct email requests.
It is simple: 1.) find the community you would like to connect with on our page. 2.) contact us with the name of the ecovillage and your interests in connecting (work exchange opportunity, educational program, an afternoon visit, etc.) 3.) we connect you with an Ambassador and... the magic begins!
