About.

Join leaders in the regenerative communities movement for a unique 3-day retreat at the stunning Arcosanti urban laboratory in Arizona. Following the Arcosanti Convergence, this gathering is designed for organizations working at the intersection of sustainability and community. A series of Open Space sessions will guide us into project-focused working groups. Individuals, communities, and organizations wishing to become partners in GENNA Alliance are encouraged to attend. Together we can synergize our efforts for a thriving network!

“We envision a world of interdependent cooperative communities stewarding the conditions of regeneration, justice, peace and abundance, in order to realize the full potential of flourishing for all life, for all generations to come.”
