Program Description

Explore the principles of “Sustainability Through Community” in one of Europe’s most beautiful countries – Scotland. Come live in the Findhorn Community – known internationally since 1962 for its experiments with new models for holistic and sustainable living.

Since 1980 the Findhorn Foundation has evolved into one of the world’s unique sustainable ‘Global Villages.’ Findhorn links the spiritual, social and economic aspects of life and the very best of current thinking on human habitats. It is a constantly evolving community providing solutions to human and social needs while at the same time working in partnership with the environment to offer an enhanced quality of life for all.

What is a sustainable community?

A sustainable community may be described as a human settlement, which is sustainable ecologically, economically, culturally and spiritually. The continuing expansion of the sustainable community provides a valuable model for our future and has created a tool for research and education. As a sustainable community, the Findhorn Foundation and Community is part of the rapidly growing Eco-village Network, which links eco-village and sustainable community projects worldwide.

Sustainable communities and this lifestyle model is a method to navigate the difficulty of transforming human settlements no matter the size or place in the world. This method seeks to integrate human areas into the natural environment. Principles of this community style can be used in rural and urban areas and to all types of nations across the globe.
