Ecovillage

OASIS ECOVILLAGE

We compassionately connect to ourselves, each other & the environment and contribute towards a thriving planet.

An Ecovillage is an intentional, urban or traditional community that is designed to regenerate their social and natural environments in all four dimensions of sustainability (social, cultural, ecological and economical) through locally owned, participatory processes.

– The Global Ecovillage Network movement

Oasis Ecovillage will mostly be a Quadrant 4 ecovillage, where we have private economy and most of the people who live in the community work inside the community – either in community owned or private enterprises.

Vision

A world, where everyone increases their quality of life, while ensuring optimal living conditions for future generations. A world of regeneration!

Mission

To live in the new paradigm and provide a living example of the paradigm shift that needs to happen.

Who we are?

We are from Denmark, USA, Portugal, and Ukraine. More nationalities is about to join. What unites us is the vision and mission of this project. We have no connection with religious movements, but call for a personal approach to spirituality based on presence. Our basic attitude is reflected in this sentence:

We compassionately connect to ourselves, each other & the environment and contribute towards a thriving planet.

Where?

Why at Avnø?

It’s a protected area, so only eco-friendly activities are allowed. Cities of the future must exist in symbiosis with Nature. The presence of town-style buildings allows us to show how – using permacultural design and rewilding – our habitual environments may be transformed into nice and yet productive eco-friendly systems.

Chemical contamination of a couple of spots will challenge us to use the latest microbiological research to restore the land.

The presence of different ecosystems (like forest, sea, swamp, meadow) provides an excellent chance to teach biodiversity and natural patterns. Here we can observe relations between various living forms and the circulation of nutrients.

What if all the remaining nature were made into a protected zone? How would we survive?

How would we change our approach to life if biodiversity & balance became our first priority?

Humanity’s path to harmony with our Planet runs through places like Avnø. A place to merge with Nature and feel it. An island of awareness for mind, body, and soul. A green Oasis, where the connections between Self and Nature may be restored. A place for reflection, renewal, and starting over.
