Global Village Peace Gathering (GVPG) is run by a voluntary collective made
up of people who are engaged in a variety of research and development work
ranging from writing, poetry and theatre to audio electronics engineering,
ecological architecture, digital art, sculpture, web design, green energy and
organic land management.
What brings us together as a group is the unifying belief in:
- Ecology - we've only got one planet, so we better look after it!
- Peace - intelligent solutions in a world of dwindling resources.
- Community - there can be no community without peace, and there can be no peace without community.
We come together to share skills and work together, developing many different projects.
Our first project was to set up an annual event, a gathering of music, arts, talks and workshops,
an event where we could all get together and experiment with new ideas, new structures,
new music and art. This event has since developed into what became known as the Global
Village Peace Gathering.
Pictures from our first 'official' Gathering can be foundhere.
