Designing Regenerative Communities | WEBINAR

It’s time we come together to radically question the way we live

We are interconnected, interdependent beings - but we’re living in separation from each other and our environment, leading us to mindlessly support deep-rooted systems of extraction. 

At this evening WEBINAR, Alegría Village Co-founder Kara Alter will lead a discussion of what it means to redesign our lifestyles to be regenerative - to heal our planet, not destroy her. We’ll look at models of community design as a powerful solution and share strategies for long-term change that we can all start implementing NOW. 

Kara will also present a step-by-step process for starting a land-based “ecovillage” from scratch (using Alegría Village as an example), from vision to masterplan, fundraising, permitting, construction, project management, and attracting and uniting community.

Together let’s build systems, communities and lifestyles that REGENERATE our planet.

What does a modern ecovillage look like, what is it like to live there, and what are the models that make it a regenerative design for both people and planet? In the week following Envision Festival, we’ll take you from the Pacific coast to the Caribbean, visiting several ecovillage communities, each with a different structure, design, governance, and lifestyle. Experience a way of life you’ve always known is possible, get an in-depth look at what makes an ecovillage project successful, and envision a world where our collective impact radically improves the Earth we share rather than destroys it.
