The Green Road is an initiative connecting Ukrainian refugees with safe places to stay in ecovillages across Ukraine and Europe. Ecovillages are intentional communities promoting sustainable living. The Green Road has helped relocate at least 3,000 displaced Ukrainians in 40 ecovillages in Ukraine and over 300 in Europe. The project was born out of the war in Ukraine, with calls pouring in from members of the Global Ecovillage Network ready to assist. Ukrainian ecovillages, originally focused on self-sufficiency, have evolved due to the influx of refugees. The Green Road now focuses on advocacy, capacity-building, and networking, with initiatives like a bicycle project to generate income for displaced Ukrainians living in ecovillages. The project aims to restore communities and mediate conflicts while striving for a peaceful and sustainable future.
