Sailing to the European Ecovillage Conference 2018

In summer 2018, Hawila sailed across the Baltic Sea to the European Global Ecovillage Conference in Estonia, a meeting of over 500 practitioners and researchers from ecovillages, sustainable initiatives and intentional communities.

The Conference hosted presentations, lectures, co-creation sessions, an Sustainable Technology Expo, dance, yoga and ceremonies, as well as a special programme celebrating Estonia ́s 100th anniversary.

The voyage took 25 people onboard together with a professional crew and included a number of workshops, activities and knowledge exchange during the sailing. On its way to Estonia, Hawila stopped in Visby, on the island of Gotland, for a couple of days to join the famous Almedalen week where we will host workshops and projections onboard. The sailing was organised in collaboration with NGO Relearn Suderbyn and the Baltic Ecovillage Network.
