We are excited to welcome you to the first ever EDE in Sweden and warmly invite you to join us on a journey towards personal, social and planetary thriving! Join us for 31 days of co-creating a vibrant learning community, diving deeply into community-based tools for regeneration and designing projects for both personal and planetary transformation.
The Ängsbacka EDE embraces a whole-systems view of change and focuses on tools and approaches that encourage personal, social and planetary resilience and well-being. For us, all three levels of the system are important. To have positive impact – understand the system you work in and learn tools for transformation. If you are a changemaker, self-care is a political act. To co-create the world we believe in, caring for each other and creating resilient circles that hold and restore us is part of the beautiful and necessary work we do. In the Ängsbacka EDE, we will work with all these levels, and make them an active part of our designs and the way we are together.
Ängsbacka is a magical Swedish countryside course and festival centre surrounded by farmlands, forests and lakes. For 20 years the people and the programmes have been serving our vision …”to explore how human beings together can consciously create the life they desire on earth, and to demonstrate paths to sustainable development, well-being, and harmony”. Thousands of individuals have over the years harvested the fruits of our heartfelt work. We hosted the European Ecovillage Conference in 2017, are in the process of designing our village in the forest based on permaculture principles and are starting to create an ecovillage close by. Hosting an Ecovillage Design Education course will truly deepen our intention and allow us to build a stronger network and to connect and work alongside people that share our vision. We believe this will have a huge impact on our ability to continue to be a source of inspiration to many in the years to come. For sure, you are joining our community at an interesting time and we look forward to getting to know you.
