Communities Presenting in December
Umphakatsi Peace Ecovillage
Umphakatsi Peace Ecovillage is a youth-based community initiative that started in 2006 in Steynsdorp Village – Mpumalanga Province – South Africa. The founder of the project (Sarah Motha) is a member of the community, who after living in the village for 33 years, studying, working and travelling; realized that the available resources in the village can be turned into an opportunity for job creation and developing sustainable livelihoods. Hence since the project was started by 11 young members of the community (and 4 adults) who have voluntarily worked together towards establishing the project from building a road, starting fruit garden, to maintaining the Ecovillage.
Greek Village Cohousing
We are an international group creating the first multigenerational cohousing village in Greece! We are a multigenerational, multinational, and multilingual group. While we do not share any particular ideology or religion or political opinion, we all share a dedication to community and to the mission of creating Greece’s first cohousing village.
A few of us have significant experience living in cohousing and eco villages. This can lay a strong foundation for a healthy community. A few others are Greek or have significant experience living in Greece, and they will be a great bridge to the wider community. Still others are coming from all walks of life, with a rich mix of skills, talents, and backgrounds that make this group special.

Testimonials for Virtual Tour of Intentional Communities
“This is my first exposure to intentional living situations. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the possibilities and the underlying thinking that informs this kind of living choice. The presenters were excellent. It was great to see the different settings and to hear the various questions related to these three living situations. Thank you so much for this presentation.”
“Great photos and narratives about the philosophy and diversity of communities. I learned about thinks I didn’t know and was given the opportunity to ask all my questions, which were answered in a comprehensive manner.”
