Our mission is to work for a resilient society where innovative solutions are integrated with age-old knowledge.

In order to help bring about positive social change within contemporary systems, we work with individuals, groups and international projects in various aspects of global, local and inner sustainability.
The NGO was founded in Suderbyn Ecovillage on Gotland in 2007. Over the years, the NGO has shifted its focus from local promotion of ecological lifestyle to regional and international work with the focus on education and holistic models of social and environmental sustainability.
