Asia and the Pacific make up the most diverse region in our world, and the ecovillages and people of GENOA reflect this amazing diversity. At GENOA, we work together to support people to live in a sustainable way, with dignity, in harmony with each other, and with nature.

Take a look at what's going on and join in - our ecovillage directory, news, events and marketplace. If you register you can add your own items. If you need any help posting items, just contact Aku (akanchhya@gmail.com) and Tong Xin (newoasisforlife@gmail.com).

You can also join us on Facebook and join our email list (less than one email per week).

If you want to help, we'd love it - we're all volunteers here! We need lots of different skills, and if we can't use your skill we can probably point you towards someone in our network who can! To start, please complete our interest form.

To connect to a country network, take a look at our contacts and country networks.

Given the huge diversity of ideologies and viewpoints on many issues within the area of holistic sustainability (i.e. social, environmental, economic and spiritual/cultural sustainability), we generally do not endorse any of the projects or writings on this website but, rather, encourage the sharing of this information and allow you to decide for yourself.

Thank you for visiting. We hope this website helps you on your journey of building a better world! Peace and blessings from all of us at GENOA.
