Fanny van Hal

Management of the Living Environment

Fanny van Hal grew up in an intentional community of 18 households located in the fruit basket region of the Netherlands. She moved to the Arterra Bizimodu community in Spain in 2015. Fanny finished her four-year Bachelor of Management of the Living Environment (BSc) at Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences and did her final thesis project with the Council of Sustainable Settlements of Latin America (CASA) and their national network CASA Colombia. Always having had an interest in ecovillages, Fanny travelled and visited several eco projects around the world, ranging from occupied villages to self-sufficient farms and ecovillages. Through these experiences and growing up in one such community she has come to value living in a communal setting for the ways that diverse individuals promote sharing, working together, organisation, planning, and conflict resolution. Fanny is an entrepreneurial, creative and positively critical person who is passionate about working in international teams facilitating change towards a more green and inclusive world.
