Dear friends and colleagues,

We are very pleased to announce the awarding of a grant to Gaia University for the development of International Standards for Regenerative Development (working title).

The grant of $100,000 by the Global Eco-Restoration & Development Foundation, (GERDF), a member of the Eco-Earth Alliance, will cover Phase I of this project. The Ecovillage Network of the Americas will serve as fiscal sponsor. China will be the first pilot country where the draft Standards will be tested.

This is a call for candidates who are experienced members of Ecovillage, Co-Housing, Ecocity, Permaculture, Bioregional, Smart Growth and allied movements. We are looking for active leaders with relevant knowledge and skills, and significant time to commit to this project from January through June 2005, to join a team of ten people to develop the working draft, as well as an Advisory Board which will revise the proposed document and suggest changes.

Team members will receive a stipend of $5000 and their expenses paid for a 5 day working meeting to take place in February, 2005 at an Ecovillage or Permaculture project. In addition, it is expected that most of the team members will be invited for the launch of the Pilot Testing of Standards presently scheduled for June 18, 2005 in China. All expenses will also be paid for the conference in China.

Advisory Council members will serve as volunteers but may be invited to the China Standards launch conference of June 18, 2005 with expenses covered.

Further information is contained in the attached documents. If you are interested in this project and would like to be a part of the "Team", be on the Advisory Council, or just be advised of progress and have the opportunity to "endorse" the Standards when the draft is completed, please fill in the attached application, and return it NO LATER THAN Wednesday, December 22th, to Liora Adler <mailto:lioraadler [at] gaiauniversity.org>lioraadler [at] gaiauniversity.org or <mailto:lioraadler [at] aol.com>lioraadler [at] aol.com

Be sure to include a one-two page resume with your response and note any prior experience in the development of standards, guidelines, tests and measurements.

Feel free to pass this on to other potentially interested colleagues and forgive cross-postings.

Team members will be selected with an eye to balancing (to the extent possible) gender, bioregional residence, and experience. There is a strong possiblity that the working meeting site will be Mexico, although other options that minimize travel by the international Team are being considered. If you are selected you will be notified of the confirmed meeting venue and precise dates on Jan. 9, 2005

For the Earth!
