Beyond the green horizon there is a Living Village, a place with abundance, connection, inspiration and thankfulness.
At the Village square there is everything you need nearby: fire, good food, drinks, soft couches, bands, movies, toys and good neighbors. It’s a place were nature, crew, artists and visitors are together-sufficient. It’s a place everybody may call ‘home’. Feel free to climb the Acoustic Pop-Up Stage during an ‘open mic’ or join a Q&A at the round table. The workshop and futurelab are open for creators and researchers.
The Village square is a co-creation of HetLevendeDorp and Ppauw, the Mobile Ecovillage Workshop Wageningen.
The Living Village is all about raising awareness. About our ecological footprint, use of resources, and how we interact with each other. We create a platform for new, innovative projects that make the world a better place. This year we ask your attention for the Dutch foundation Sheltersuit. A foundation who develops a lifesaving short-term solution for a big problem. The Sheltersuit is a water- and wind-proof coat which can be transformed into a sleeping bag. These are given to homeless people and refugees for free. Although it does not solve homelessness, it does prevent people from freezing to death. All the Shelter suits are created with upcycled and recycled materials, by refugees, unemployed and homeless people in the social workshop in Enschede. By donating, you enable Sheltersuits to produce more suits, saving lives and creating jobs. Scan the QR code and make a donation, together we will make this world a better place, one Sheltersuit at a time.
