The Activating Community Transformation project was an EU-funded Erasmus+ collaborative partnership project running from 2020-2023. Its aims are:

  • To help grow an international network of learning and demonstration centres
  • To share good practice in the fields of sustainability, regeneration and resilience between those centres
  • To help those centres to activate community transformation by offering a range of related demonstration and learning programmes and resources that help spread that good practice.

This has been done by gathering, analysing and collating good practice, by defining a competence framework for those involved in managing such centres, by providing inspiring case studies of successful projects, and by collating a set of valuable tools online.

The iACT project has the following partners:

Permaculture Association (Britain) - lead partner;
Cloughjordan Ecovillage (Sustainable Projects Ireland CLG);
Centre for Ecological Learning, Luxembourg (CELL);
Permakultur Danmark;
Green School Village and the Permaculture Association of Bulgaria;
Laboratorio Sicilia 2030, Italy;
Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes (cE3c), University of Lisbon, Portugal.

The partners are considering ways to continue their work, and potentially seek additional funding to take this forward.
