About the Talk
Luvian Iskandar is from Indonesia, but he spent the past 7.5 years living in Taiwan. For his Master’s program at National Dong Hwa University, he focused his studies on ecovillages. As a part of his research he got a chance to immerse himself deeply through being involved in the daily activities at an new ecovillage initiative in Fuli, Hualien.
After he completed his masters program, he decided to live as a resident in that ecovillage community for another year. During this time, he also started working with the Global Ecovillage Network of Oceania and Asia (GENOA) as their communications coordinator. Through these experiences he learnt and grew so much in various dimensions: academically, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
In this talk, Luvian told his story of how he found out about ecovillages, their significance, and how he has been gradually integrating principles and practices of regenerative living that he learned from ecovillage communities to his life. He is using what he learnt to have the “power to change”.
