The 3rd Ecovillage Conference Tokyo (2009)


The 3rd Ecovillage Conference Tokyo
~ Lectures/ Discussions/ Workshops/ Music Live/ Movie/ Art Exhibition/ Cafe… 53 programs in three days!

In recent years, there has been a move toward reconstructing rural village environments by creating ecological residential spaces located in appropriate areas, and providing green tourism and eco-tourism services. These areas are termed “ecovillages”. The concept of an ecovillage is not only for rural areas, but also applies to urban areas too. For example, collective houses and cooperatives in cities. The ecovillage concept covers lots of suggestions and important ideas to develop a sustainable future.

More than 50 presenters will attend the conference, including founders of the global ecovillage network, key people in the Asian eco-community movement, and MANY Japanese practitioners who have started ecovillage projects all over Japan!

Come along to get inspiration, to make friends, and to network with cool people who enjoy the slow life!
