The second Sustainable Communities Programme workshop took place in Brussels on September 23rd and 24th 2019. It was supported by a small grant from FundAction, and timed to coincide with follow-up events to the European Day of Sustainable Communities and kick-off meeting for the Ecovillage transition in action project. It was attended by around 30 in-person participants.

Context Setting

The workshop began with a mapping exercise based on the Berkana Institute's two loops model, facilitated by Davie Philip.

Insights from Existing Initiatives

A fishbowl discussion began with reports from key actors in several existing cases of transformative regional initiatives: the Sustainable Neighbourhoods Programme, the Bioregional Learning Centre, the Living in Sustainable Villages project and Moray ecovillage development. Further discussion, also involving other participants, identified key challenges and success factors.
