Consolidating our energy towards a global network of steem-based eco-communities is a clear priority for @ecotrain. We deliberately and consciously curate those posts which speak to the issues, challenges and needs of the emerging steem eco-communities around the world.

@ecotrain is a artisan-hand-curated community built around the concept of gift economy and actively making our world a better place. We engage around sustainability, eco-green, permaculture, the glories of Mother Earth, inner transformation, alternative energy, earthships & earth building, recycling - in short, all the practical and conceptual underpinnings of paradigm shift.

Portugal Update from @orlev. "I want this project to be open source, completely transparent, and that starts with me. My personal insecurities and fears, my shortcomings and faults. If I'm too ashamed to share my faults now, how will I share the community's challenges, and failures, so that I and others can learn from them..?"
Is starting an EcoVillage easy? LOL... heck no. And yet it continues to draw many people whose hearts are tired of crumbling social values and who seek to build something new and sustainable. @freyafri updates us on the Friskoven Eco Village project, her challenges and the future as she sees it.
Where is the second greatest concentration of eco-villages in Australia? After the Byron-Mullum-Daintree areas, it's in Eastern Victoria and South Eastern New South Wales - today facing one of the largest mass forced evacuations in Australia history. Our thoughts and prayers are with those eco communities as all they have worked for is threatened and destroyed. @bengy asks a GREAT question: "When will there be a reckoning?" for those authorities and powers who have failed to act on climate change?
How does an EcoVillage celebrate? Abundantly and together!! @everlove shares the pics from a gorgeous natural celebration, dripping with fresh food, laughter and a lot of community lovve. Yes, there are already EcoVillages thriving and happening all over the world.
If you can't bring the Village to Eco, bring Eco to the Village! Reviving, regenerating and bringing Eco values to villages around the world is another way of building more EcoVillage life. How bet to start this? With the children! @abdulhamids shows us how they're teaching children to plant and to green the village. Great work!
Question of the Week is one of the ways that this online steem-based community engages around the tough questions of life! We're about to fire-up for the 2020 season, and inviting you to join in with us. Stay tuned as the launch post will be hitting the @ecotrain feed early this coming week.
Meanwhile, please ENJOY the almanac of 2019's Questions of the Week.
The Steem Community of Thought grows and evolves as we grapple with some of the challenges of life.
