Connect with New Culture in other places
Welcome to the overview site for New Culture groups and events world-wide!
"New Culture" is about creating sustainable, rich, intimate personal relationships, along with a sustainable world to enjoy them in, based on transparency, delight, freedom, and community.

Network For a New Culture (NFNC) is a North American group that was originally inspired by the German community ZEGG (acronym for German words meaning "Center for Experimental Cultural Design").
NFNC seeks to build a sustainable, violence-free culture through exploring intimacy, personal growth, transparency, radical honesty, equality, compassion, sexual freedom, and the power of community.

We are a small, family-style, egalitarian, intentional community on the big island of Hawai’i. Staying with us is a vibrant immersion in our community lifestyle. Many visitors find it transformative and life-changing.
The combination of living community and educational centre makes ZEGG a special place. In the midst of our social and ecological model project, living and learning are interwoven.
Started in 1978 with a small group, we’re currently a community of around 200, working towards autonomous decentralized models for a post-capitalist world, with those who share our vision of Terra Nova.

We’re taught male and female roles, and ways of seeing ourselves, that may lead to separation, fear and mistrust.
