The Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting cooperative culture.
FIC believe that intentional communities are pioneers in sustainable living, personal and cultural transformation, and peaceful social evolution. “Intentional communities” include ecovillages, cohousing, residential land trusts, income-sharing communes, student co-ops, spiritual communities, and other projects where people live together on the basis of explicit common values.
Since beginning in 1987, FIC goes about its work in a number of ways, including the Communities Directory, Communities magazine, Community Bookstore, community-focused Events, Classifieds, the Blog, and more.
FIC’s passion is promoting cooperative culture and sustainable living. That means providing the information and inspiration for those seeking community, forming communities, struggling with the challenges of community, and those who want to develop a greater sense of community where they are.
However community touches your life, FIC’ll try to help you find what you’re looking for. In turn, you can help by becoming an FIC member.
