Get In Where You Fit In

 

 

The purpose of our summit is to expose individuals and groups to contemporary sustainable, intentional communities.  Whether you are here to sharpen your skill set in one of our themed areas or if you are looking to create a more definite plan for repatriation and/or sustainable development in your current country/state, you are in the right place!

 

​Learn:

  • Skills necessary to support or develop sustainable communities (particularly in 2019 - Costa Rica & in 2020 - Ghana)

  • How to establish an Intentional Community Living Plan (find the right circle of like-minded families/people, find the best location that is aligned with your future, and learn how to contribute to the community you join/create).  

  • How to develop Sustainability Projects that serve the Black/Afrikan community

  • About various intentional communities and how you can contribute to their success

  • How to become self-sufficient in an urban or rural environment; adapt to your situation and provide for your family

SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION
 

Food sovereignty puts ownership of food systems into the hands of the communities themselves. It involves a sustainable, long-term process in which a community can establish its own food systems and produce its own local products without being subject to fluctuating international markets or dependent on external sources for the acquisition of seeds. Food sovereignty takes into account the cultural and social, political, geographical and environmental context of the community in order to develop an appropriate plan of action to address particular problems and needs.  Tune in to learn how to feed yourself, your family and your community.
