Global Ecovillage Network at COP23 in Bonn, Germany

In early November, the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) presented innovative solutions and ideas for regenerative development at the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) in Bonn, Germany. GEN held a special event at CO23 on regenerative practices to meet climate commitments from the 2015 Paris Agreement, and shared stories of community-led carbon drawdown solutions.
