What’s On at Findhorn – Creating Sustainable Communities

Placing Ourselves Within the Web of Life

In a world where there is an increasing need for viable, sustainable human settlements, ecovillages offer an enhanced quality of life for all, providing environmental, social, economic and spiritual sustainability.

Applied Ecovillage Living
14 February – 13 March 2015

This unique four-week programme is a living experience of the Findhorn Ecovillage, giving you the concepts, tools and techniques needed for creating sustainable communities. The Findhorn Community is a successful large-scale, full-featured human settlement working in true co-creation with nature and demonstrating real solutions to the global challenges humanity faces. An embodiment of the knowledge and wisdom we have gained over the past 52 years, our ecovillage is the setting for an intensive programme on how to live together in community, sustainably with the Earth and all expressions of life.


Drawing from our expertise, as well as that of other local and international initiatives, the Applied Ecovillage Living programme provides a practical forum for learning and for developing action plans. The topics covered during the four weeks include:

  • An introduction to permaculture design
  • Local organic food production
  • Renewable energy systems
  • Cooperative social economies
  • Group building and deep ecology
  • Earth restoration and environmental art
  • Ecological building and community design

Discover how permaculture principles can be applied holistically to provide an enhanced quality of life for all.

Now in its 17th year and presented in association with Gaia Education and the Global Ecovillage Network, this programme has been one of our contributions to the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005–2014) and continues to play its part in helping humanity create a world in which we live in harmony with all of nature.
