About

People behind this project form a small community in Slovakia. In recent years they absolved various workshops focused on hard skills, like building straw houses, farming in a sustainable way, permaculture design, etc. They went through various stages of a small community life cycle, not knowing what exactly to do, what to expect next and how to find solutions to their problems.

In nowadays, the theme of a sustainable life, cooperation between people and focus on small communities is even bigger. Unfortunately, there are no workshops on topics like how to start a small community, how to select the members, how to handle the problems, manage the work together, where to find finances to run a project, etc. We therefore decided to organize a set of workshops focused on soft skills of small communities. We would like to support sharing the best practice of the communities from the V4 countries, as well.

We invite not only participants, but also lectors from all Visegrad countries. The ideas, best practices, lectures and outcomes will be summarized in final brochure and the presentations will be distributed online.

For the purposes of wide spreading, the communication language is English.
