Life in Community in the YEAR 2020
September 29, 2020 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT , $5 – $45
What’s happening with intentional communities in the YEAR 2020?
How are intentional communities responding to the challenges of this Year 2020 — from a pandemic to protests, natural disasters to political divisiveness. Are intentional communities better able to cope than the mainstream? What lessons can we learn from life in community?
Join us for this first event in our new series “Meet the Communities” to learn from intentional communities through presentations and panel discussion followed by Q&A from all of you. The event will feature Twin Oaks Community, Ithaca EcoVillage, Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, and PDX Commons – all intentional communities from across the US. Learn more about each community below.
Get your ticket above to join this live workshop on Zoom and/or to receive the recording in case you can’t make it. Tuesday, September 29 from 4–6pm Eastern. See your local time.
Twin Oaks Community
Twin Oaks Community is an ecovillage and intentional community of about one hundred people living on 450 acres in Louisa County, Virginia. It is a member of the Federation of Egalitarian Communities. Founded in 1967, it is one of the longest-enduring and largest income-sharing intentional communities in North America.
EcoVillage at Ithaca is part of a global movement of people seeking to create positive solutions to the social, environmental and economic crises our planet faces. Since 1991 we have developed an award-winning ecovillage of over two hundred residents. Our mission is to promote experiential learning about ways of meeting human needs for shelter, food, energy, livelihood and social connectedness that are aligned with the long-term health and viability of Earth and all its inhabitants.
Occidental Arts and Ecology Center
The Occidental Arts & Ecology Center (OAEC) is an 80-acre research, demonstration, advocacy and organizing center in Sonoma County, California that develops strategies for regional-scale community resilience. OAEC’s work focuses on cultivating ecological literacy and building the capacity of civic and social movement leaders and organizations to guide their communities toward an ecologically regenerative, economically viable, and socially just future.
PDX Commons is an intentional community of individuals dedicated to making the most of our last third of life together. Our condominium combines private homes with many shared spaces for socializing, meals, and community business meetings. We share a common ethic of inclusion, cooperation and accountability. Our beautiful facility in Portland, Oregon has easy access to public transit, parks, shops, restaurants and grocery stores. We practice sustainable living and are committed to decreasing our footprint on the planet.
