Practise shows the intentions and structures – or the lack of the same. What can support groups in getting their plans down to earth, to have their intentions materialize? How to find the right people for the tasks, how to organise the workflow or the distribution of work? The practice layer of CLIPS responds to the questions of practice – what can be seen and experienced. Methods have been gathered and adapted from the ecovillage network which can contribute to successful realisation of projects.
