We are pleased and excited as Foundation trustees May East and Michael Shaw leave for Brazil to deliver the first event within the framework of a pilot year of Findhorn CIFAL (International Training Centre for Local Authorities/Actors).
CIFAL is a network of centres (there are currently 11) around the world who offer trainings for sustainable development, mainly for local authorities and urban planners. The United Nations Institute for Training and Research-UNITAR, an autonomous body within the United Nations, was created to deliver training and research programmes worldwide, and it has developed CIFAL centres to serve government and local authorities, recognising their critical role in achieving the United Nations Development Goals highlighting sustainability.
May and Michael, with partners in the Global Ecovillage Network and others, will offer the training Ecovillages: New approaches to Urban Regeneration, to local authorities from Latin America and the Caribbean, hosted by established CIFAL centre Curitiba in Brazil.
