The aim of the workshop is to reach out to Estonian rural and urban neighbourhoods who have expressed interest in transitioning into more conscious and sustainable communities to give ideas, examples and inspiration from the GEN movement and such communities from around the world. With the help of Ecovillage Playing Cards the examples of a typical traditional Estonian village and a post-Soviet urban neighbourhood are pondered making thus also a functional introduction to the four dimensions of sustainability. The workshop is intended especially for invited participants from the country – village leaders, community activists, community-based project initiators. It is open to all conference participants with similar aims and backgrounds!
