iACT: How to design and run centres for activating community transformation

::  learning projects  ::  guidance & tools  ::  

This session will present the mission and outputs of the iACT project, which is focused on the vital role of learning and demonstration projects in growing our movements.

It will focus on the support system of tools, good practice guidance and related resources the iACT project has created for those that are establishing new or running existing permaculture / regenerative / sustainability learning and demonstration projects, whether these are following the LAND Centre model, or are ecovillages, transition hubs or other types of projects.

Participation activities during the session will be focused on determining the needs, opportunities and potential of both centres themselves, and national / European support systems.
