Our ecovillage in Denmark offers volunteering opportunities to people who want to explore a sustainable lifestyle, community life and personal development. Skills for a sustainable future – the program offers volunteers a chance to learn green skills in return for their energy and work to support the development of our ecovillage, Avnø Oasis – Eco-village. Volunteers get involved in different areas of our work here, such as permaculture, holistic cooking, green project & eco-entrepreneurship, maintenance of buildings, administration, communication & marketing.

We are looking for long term volunteers, who want to dedicate their energy and skills both to practical work and being part of the community.

OASIS Eco-village Project is a combination of an Eco-village with eco-partnerships and green projects, a Folk-High-School (adult learning centre), Avnø Højskole, which opens February 17, 2021) focused on sustainability on all levels, a LAND centre (Permaculture), which means ”Learning And Network Demonstration” and a transition initiative taking part in the transition of the local area. We invite you to check us out. We just became land-based on August 1st.

Are you looking for a place to settle down and live life as humans are supposed to?
 Do you crave a place that offers it all – a possibility to create your own green enterprise, a conscious community, a home-centred in & around nature and the possibility of inspiring the rest of the world? Avnø Oasis, an aspiring ecovillage in Denmark, welcomes you to explore the possibility of becoming one of the first residents of our cohousing community! We have 21 ha of land with 6058 sqm of buildings in a nature protected area directly at the coast.
We aim to build our Eco-Village on three pillars:
  • Co-housing community,
  • people’s college
  • regenerative enterprise.

We are establishing a cooperative housing association (andelsboligforening) for a community that aims to live healthy, grow together, and work “from home” – either in enterprises owned by individuals or co-created by groups of residents under the new paradigm – while inspiring the rest of the world through our example and the teachings of our people’s college (højskole)!
