Community is essential to a Cooperative and Sustainable world


Welcome to FIC

Intentional communities are groups of people living together with some shared resources on the basis of explicit common values.

Examples include ecovillagescohousing, communes, student co-ops, spiritual communities, and more.

The Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the development of intentional communities, and the evolution of cooperative culture.

Find intentional communities in the Directory, read inspiration and lessons in Communities magazine, and explore books, videos, and teaching games in the Community Bookstore.


Let’s disrupt climate disruption!


Climate Disruption hurts us all, and yet many of us don’t know what to do.

We need some cultural reorientation, and we need it quickly. That’s why we published ‘Together Resilient: Building Community in the Age of Climate Disruption.’

We’re also launching a national speaking tour to help bring the important lessons intentional communities have learned about resilience and sustainability to a broader audience.

Together Resilient is available in both print and digital download!
