Ecovillages and social innovation (report)

This report provides a summary of a full case report that includes in-depth case studies of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN). The report was guided by four empirical research questions:
1. the overall development of the local cases and the transnational network(ing);
2. how they relate to different types of change and innovation (incl. social innovation, system innovation, game changers, narratives of change and societal transformation);
3. how actors are empowered and/or disempowered in and by the local cases and the transnational network(ing), including topics such as governance, learning, resourcing and monitoring;
4. what are other relevant emergent issues with regard to understanding the dynamics of transformative social innovation
