The world is rapidly changing and the new paradigm requires technical solutions on one side and regenerative social technologies on another side. Clean renewable energy, closed loops of water and nutrients, resource management and polyculture. Transparent communication, collective intelligence, non-violence, sharing economy and inclusive horizontal organisation. In the course of 1 month we will explore these technical and social dimensions of new emerging civilisation.
The project is funded by Erasmus+ EVS program which covers the participants' traveling, food, accommodation and pocket money. In other words the experience is completely for free, even the travel here.
Our goal is to contribute to the evolution of a new paradigm thinking where technologies are regenerative for the ecosystem and social practices are regenerative for the human beings. We invite you to learn about the ability to renew our culture, technologies and oneself – Renewability.
The laboratory will take place in Suderbyn Ecovillage, an intentional international community on the island of Gotland. We are a dynamic group of around 30 young adults discovering ecologically and socially sustainable ways to live. We question the norms and patterns of consumption, social structures and stereotypes. We experiment with innovative technologies and traditional knowledge. We empower each other to be true selves, to learn and grow individually and collectively. We prototype a model of a value-based regenerative society with authentic care for people and nature.
