NextGEN invites young people aged 16-25 from
all over Europe to Tamera Ecovillage Portugal in
July 2011 for a peer-to-peer youth meeting.
We wish to create a space for young people to share their visions
and motivation, to network and learn new social tools. The
gathering will offer a framework in which the creativity of youth
can run free, where ideas can be shared, developed and realized
and where individual and collective awareness are strengthened.
As one of the lecturers, John Croft who will speak on Dragon
Dreaming – a social tool for personal growth, strengthening of
communi t ies and par t i c ipator y projec t des ign.
Tamera in Southern Portugal is an ecovillage community known
for its experimental research on the development of a peaceful
culture worldwide. Approximately 200 people live, work and study
in Tamera. Our youth meeting camping site is within walking
distance to the GEN-Conference (Global Ecovillage Network
Europe) which is taking place at the same time. It will give us the
opportunity to get in touch with people from all over Europe and
Africa who have been involved in the ecovillage movement for
many years. We are invited to join their presentations of inspiring
projects in the evenings .
