Ecologia Youth Trust is part of the Findhorn Community, an international holistic education centre and United Nations (UN) recognised eco-village, established 50 years ago in Scotland. The Findhorn Eco-village Community is known internationally for its innovative new models for sustainable living, not only in environmental terms, but also in social, economic and spiritual terms.
We also collaborate with The Global Ecovillage Network (GEN), a growing network of communities and ecological initiatives around the world, which share ideas, technologies and information about how to live more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable lives. GEN works in cooperation with a range of international organisations, including the UN and the EU.
As part of the Findhorn Community, Ecologia has a wealth of experience in community based approaches to sustainable living, whilst our extensive experience of working with disadvantaged children and young people means we are uniquely placed to support them to find long-term solutions to their problems and those of their communities.
We believe in genuine sustainable development, which values the attainment of economic, environmental, social and cultural objectives equally. Our approach places a respect for the difference and diversity of individuals, communities, cultures and societies at the heart or our work, while focussing on one common goal – to truly meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
