Join sociology researcher Lasse Kos to explore the impact of ecovillages worldwide, via a presentation on the results of the largest global survey on ecovillages.

About the event

Ecovillages are regarded as real-life laboratories of sustainable change. They are communities in which people develop sustainable, social, ecological, economic and cultural practices. These emerging innovations can provide important insight for the broader society and drive sustainability transitions. 

Ecovillages as Incubators for Sustainability Transitions (EVIST) is a research project of the University of Basel, Switzerland. The EVIST survey is the largest global survey on ecovillages. The aim of the survey is to measure how extensively and intensively ecovillages diffuse their sustainable innovations to their local and social environments.

During this 1.5 hour event, researcher Lasse Kos will share the results of this survey. You’ll get insights into the impact of ecovillages in North America, Europe and beyond and have the opportunity to network with other attendees.

In this webinar, you’ll:

  • learn about the EVIST research project and the survey results
  • have the opportunity to reflect upon the results with other participants
  • have the opportunity to network with others who are interested in ecovillages
