Ängsbacka is among the most important meeting places in Scandinavia for people who want to live a more conscious life, live from the heart and care for our planet. Since 1997, thousands of people have been touched by the warm, open, loving atmosphere during workshops, festivals and visits at Ängsbacka. To many, the place has become like a second home and a source of inspiration. Hundreds of people have lived and worked at Ängsbacka for shorter or longer periods and contributed with time, money, work and above all their love to create what we today can share and enjoy here.
About twenty people live at Ängsbacka all year around. There are also about 70 people who have moved to Molkom, the nearby village, because of its vicinity to Ängsbacka.
This EDE is not happening in Ängsbacka by coincidence. Ängsbacka provides a fun and transformative container for social, cultural and spiritual exploration, and we are designing the program to make it possible for you to get to know and take part in the community. It is an interesting time to be at Ängsbacka as the community consciously moves towards more sustainability and are on the verge of transitioning from community to ecovillage. We will both learn from and support with this process – making this EDE a rather special one.
The European Ecovillage Conference 2017 took place at Ängsbacka – setting the scene for this EDE. Have a look at this video about the conference, life in community and ecovillage activism – featuring one of your core facilitators, Anna Kovasna.
