Odi Ecovillage Living and Learning Center is the first ecovillage developed in Nigeria. It is located in the Niger Delta region in Bayelsa State, Nigeria. It was established in 2005 under the directorship of our partner Gordan Abiama. This Center has promoted and assisted in holistic sustainable community development programs while serving as a point of attraction for the wider society.
Due to unrest and instability in the region, Odi has had to put on hold it's initial program until the area becomes safe again for visitors and locals to use. In the meantime, Gordan Abiama has moved the center to the city of Yenagoa and he continues to promote and educate sustainability using the original objectives of Odi Ecovillage Living and Learning Center. The land is still there and we hope sometime in the near future to re-install our full program as stability strengthens in the region and more funds are available for the proposed projects.
