Join long-term communitarian and movement builder Sky Blue to learn pro tips for starting an intentional community.

About the event

When you hear stories of how established Intentional Communities were founded, it often feels like fate. But there are best practices that can help us tempt fate. Starting an Intentional Community is a monumental undertaking, requiring a wide variety of skills, enormous energy and dedication, and not a small amount of luck.

In Pro Tips for Starting an Intentional Community, we will offer strategies and frameworks used by successful communities, deriving from Sky Blue’s 25 years of community experience. You don’t have to invent the wheel yourself. Instead, rest on the experience of the several communities out there, learning from their failures and accomplishments, applying the tools which led to the most positive outcomes.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • [Common pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • Strategies and frameworks for things like land acquisition, systems development, and culture creation
  • Key choice-points when designing an intentional community to help create the experience you want
