Hi Pawa,

Cheers Pawa!

Does next Wednesday or Thursday at 6pm work for you for a skype call?

Hello !

Lets talk more Lucy!

The next hahopa learning village is at the end of August 2014.  Also, in the new year, Rachel Derrah & I will be hosting & harvesting a series of Skype calls about the Learning Village pattern that is being practiced more in the world.

Hi Janet

Thanks for this, if I can figure out the finance I would love to.  I'll get back in touch if I can sort out the travel.  Best with all you are doing.

Hi Mary do you know how I can get in touch with Pawa? I tried sending a message but need to be a friend, I sent a friend request but didn't get a response.  Is there another way I could contact Pawa to ask about learning villiages, or is there anyone else I could ask about this.  I will be applying for funding next year with the Sir Winston Churchill Trust, I think you can apply to travel to 2 countries, so it would be great to do some research into the learning villages that exist and to discover where it would be best to go in order to bring learning back to UK.  Many thanks.

Thanks Janet, I thought I could draw up a list of the learning villages that exist and then apply to the Sir Winston Churchill Trust for funding for travel expenses, because I'll be bringing the learning back to the UK, with the idea of setting up a learning village here.  This is all just a dream/vision at the moment, I don't know what the universe will do with it

Lucy, I'm just starting down the path, very early steps in northern Alberta, Canada. My hope is to call a circle on the land the middle of this summer, 2014. No clue as to the funding for visiting part but if you wanted to stop by for a time, I'd be happy to host you.

Lucy, you definitely need to talk to Pawa!

Comment by Lucy Fleetwood on December 3, 2013 at 7:04am

I am currently looking for a way to fund raise so that next year I can visit permanent learning villages, partly to bring what I learn back to the UK and partly to research and harvest all the amazing things that these people and places are doing, as inspiration for others.  I wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction to gather my list, and if anyone has any insights or ideas they think would help me on my way with this, that would be great.  Many thanks, Lucy.

I found interesting new concepts about new town concepts at: Based on the concept of "enabling spaces" see publications of Fundneider / Peschel
