We at NextGEN are thrilled to announce the 3rd Annual Youth Ecovillage Summit this June 9-12, 2016 to be hosted at La Cité Ecologique, in Quebec, Canada. It has been a joy to plan this year's event and ride a wave of energy generated by our work these last years. Past participants have become life-long friends and partners in creating a world inspired by the ecovillage model. Communities have benefitted from the passionate group of young people who gathered in their home for one weekend. A tribe is growing, of those who have been deeply touched by the spirit of the Youth Ecovillage Summit and seek to carry it forward.
We want to invite you to join us for a special three day journey, in a very special community, founded amongst the hills of beautiful Quebec. Over 30 years ago, La Cité began as a summer camp for children. The youth saw that another way of life was possible and convinced their parents to join them. Today this "Green City" is the largest ecovillage in Canada, with its own school for village youth, several thriving ecologically-minded businesses, and acres of organic food gardens. There are few better models for how real change is possible.
We invite you to come taste the magic of La Cité. To experience the power that we all have, even as young people, to bring real solutions into this world. Join us as we explore what works and doesn't, dive deep into our dreams and fears, and hopefully share a weekend of profound transformation.
Early-bird registration ends on Thursday, May 5th. We are expecting to fill for this year's Summit so register soon! To learn more and reserve your seat, head to our Youth Ecovillage Summit Page.
We hope to see you there!
