Together we raised $64,932! Your contribution made it possible for for us to support 45 participants come to Findhorn and participate in the GEN+20 Summit. The summit was a great success with around 300 people attending, such a beautiful diversity, commitment and engagement. Part of what made the summit so rich was the diverse cultural representation – we had people from over 50 countries present. Your contribution helped make this possible by enabling us to bring people who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to attend, largely from the Global South!
Once again a BIG thank you!
The GEN+20 Crowdfunding Team
Start the ripple. You are activating more than 100 of our most dedicated volunteers representing a rich and diverse group of cultures. Each delegate is a leader of projects on the ground in their home region. Your donations empower them to magnify their impact by attending the GEN+20 Summit. In this way, each donation begins a ripple of world-bettering work around the globe.
Since it’s founding in 1995, the Global Ecovillage Network has worked with thousands of communities all around the world, supporting local groups and organizations to implement sustainable designs in their communities. We envision a world of empowered citizens and communities, designing and implementing their own pathways to a sustainable future, and building bridges of hope and international solidarity.
From 6–10 July 2015, hundreds of activists will gather at the Findhorn Ecovillage in Scotland for the GEN+20 Summit to celebrate 20 years of walking our talk, co-creating with nature, and healing. You can find out more about the Global Ecovillage Netowrk on our website. Consider also watching this interview with GEN+20 Summit Co-ordinator Ethan Hirsch-Tauber where he talks in detail about the Summit.
The money you give will support changemakers from around the world to attend the GEN+20 Summit. We are counting on you to raise $30.000 from individual supporters. In total we are raising $100 000 which will be used to cover travel, food and accommodation costs for dedicated GEN activists from around the world. Priority will be given to people from the Global South, GEN Board representatives and young people. 10% will be used to cover the campaign costs and re-invested in GEN making sure we are able to continue doing the work we do, covering things like the production of the campaign video, website set up, fees and marketing.
