Anna moved to the Findhorn Foundation & Community in 2012. Officially to do research for her PhD in Anthropology, but really because that is where she wanted to be. She never really left, and having held different roles in the community, from gardening to organisational development, today works as the Director of Education and Research at the Global Ecovillage Network. There, she keeps busy developing tools, trainings and resources for ecovillage design and community-led social, cultural, economic and ecological regeneration. Anna is co-developer of the European Ecovillage Incubator CLIPS, as well as the Global Ecovillage Network Training of Trainers and Ecovillage Startup courses. Her research focused on localisation and community building as tools for autonomy and social change, and on how to find and make real a worldview that acknowledges our fundamental interbeing with all life. Originally from Sweden, Anna has visited more than 50 ecovillages on 4 continents. Some of the things that make her feel particularly grateful to be alive are community living, dancing, gardening, hiking, and swimming in wild seas and rivers.
