NextGEN is a youth program of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) It shares the principles, concepts, and knowledge of the Ecovillage movement.

NextGEN shares this wealth of knowledge with cities, universities, schools, businesses, governments, and communities. By integrating the knowledge of the ecovillage movement into the rest of the world, NextGEN is creating the next generation of ecovillages.

Youth Meetings are planned and organised by young people for young people. Sharing dreams and learning tools how to make them become reality will be the centrepiece of this meeting.

GEN believes it is vitally important to reach out to Youth and inspire hope, enthusiasm, creativity and joy for the wellbeing of present and future generations on our planet.

Sharing knowledge, tools and and our own commitment to better the world will empower young people to become effective change agents for a sustainable future.
