Walnut St Cooperative

Walnut Street Co-op is a social change oriented cooperative household in Eugene, Oregon. In September 2000 we moved into a large, rambling house together, seeking to build community. Three years later we formed a legal co-op, funding the project with many small loans from like-minded individuals. As housemates, we eat dinner together, share chores, attend house meetings and work parties, and have a basic commitment to resolve conflicts. We trust that each person holds a piece of the truth, and we are committed to deep listening with each other.

La Cité Écologique

Cité Écologique is an ecovillage located in Ham-Nord in the region of Quebec, Canada where residents give priority to education, sustainable development and respect. We offer an alternative lifestyle where businesses, community and sustainability are intertwined. The community began in 1984 as an alternative school based on “respect for nature.” Now, 100 members live here on a permanent basis. Visitors and interns are welcome to join our visitor’s program during summer time.

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.”
