A concrete step for Twinship

The Non-Profit Association Damanhur Education APS serves as the container for the realization of the twinning of an eco-village in the South, Guedè Chantier, Senegal, and an eco-village in the North, Damanhur, Italy. The vision brings concrete proposals for exchange between different realities, which have much to share with one another. The first step consisted of a workshop for the preservation of vegetables and tomatoes in Guede Chantier. 


EDE course

The Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) was born out of the experiences of long existing communities and cutting-edge educators in order to teach how to create a new way of living which brings together the four key dimensions of an ecovillage: social, cultural/worldview, environmental and economic.



In November 2015 two members of Damanhur Education APS participated in the Green Phoenix Conference in Switzerland. During the meeting a member from a Greek ecovillage shared about the conditions of the refugees landing in Greece and the “RefuGEN” mission was born. 


Reforestation in Senegal

Thanks to the support of many of you it was possible to realize a wonderful project: A delegation of Damanhur Education APS in collaboration with REDES  has now planted over 1400 fruit trees together with the people at the end of March 2018, in our twin-sister eco-community Guede Chantier, Senegal and 5 other villages which are part of REDES.
