New Earth Village Website Nears Completion

The ideas for New Earth Village came from dozens of conversations New Earth Group had with chiefs and administrators across British Columbia. A core concern expressed by the people we interviewed was
the need for affordable, accessible and relevant training and support. New Earth Village is designed to provide just that.

Our great hope is that much of the value received by New Earth Village members will come from members themselves - sharing ideas and resources, and partnering on projects. Our vision is that members will create for themselves a global village of expertise that will empower, enrich, guide and speed individual community change efforts.

The rapidly growing availability of the internet makes such a global indigenous village entirely possible - today. Will New Earth Village prove to be one vehicle for this global partnership? We hope so. It's a start and no doubt it will undergo many changes as we receive your feedback and gain experience.

As we near completion of the New Earth Village website, we would greatly appreciate your comments. Is what you see on this website a useful tool for indigenous community (and organization) development? What works? What does not work? What would you like to see more of? Less of?

You can tell us what you think at Rate Us - a five minute survey for members or non-members, or at Tell Us, a Talking Circle (forum) for members only. Thank you. We look forward to working with you.
