About the local hosting organizationHistorically, and even now, human beings have been searching for the true definition of a peaceful, harmonious, and “happy life”. In pursuit of the answer to this question, a group of people gathered in 1984 in what is now Sanan Village, an idealistic community which follows the philosophy of an environment-friendly, non-possessive society. As of today, around 20 people reside within this communal village, and the residents are encouraged to pay more attention to the preservation and conservation of the environment while also freely sharing public resources. People in the village live together, work together and share together. The volunteers are also required to follow their life style. The main income of the village is chicken farming. Those who are interested in a new and alternative way of living which is very different from a "normal and capitalized” life in Korea, may obtain some fresh ideas about their life through this program.
