Modeling & prototyping the society we want to live in COMMUNITY HUBS
The NILE Journeys nurtures and connects community spaces across the region called Community Hubs. These will act as acupuncture points along the Nile for impact and regeneration of the social, cultural, and ecological fields. The hubs will create a network of experiential and participatory learning spaces transferring skills to their community members within and across hubs. Stories emerging from these hubs will be documented to highlight positive narratives about the Nile basin and Africa to her citizens and beyond. This will be achieved through projects and programs addressing youth, culture, permaculture, land regeneration, water, value chain integration, entrepreneurship development, and exchange.
