EASA Belarus National Gathering

community building, observation, discussions
Grushevka, Belarus

We feel that now many rural areas are in a state of apathy. Considering this phenomenon as a kind of "borderline state", which means that new vectors of development have appeared. We believe that village is not just an evolutionary stage on the way to a city, but an important cultural unit that may become a starting point for the appearance of new forms of settlement. The research of the indigenous culture of the village can serve as a basis for the formation of a positive scenario for the future forms of settlement. We want to understand how the local landscape works, model the utopia of an ideal settlement locally and globally, imagine a holistic positive scenario for the future of Grushevka and stimulate awareness of local and global landscape.
