This is a list of some of the guilds that are required to maintain a healthy vibrant sustainable off-the-grid village. That is to say that, these are the essential and foundational activities that keep a civilized community afloat as we wean ourselves from petrol based energy and fossil fuel consumption. We’re moving towards more sustainable lifestyles day by day.
Each Guild has it’s own introductory PAGE and Blog. The PAGE is static and the blog is where the members interact and exchange ideas, goods and services.
The sorts of guilds from around the world, who are allied with, or connected to, the People’s Renaissance Network, include (but are not limited to):

The Guilds include groups of people, who are engaged in trades and occupations that are essential to the survival of a Global Village in which, our inalienable civil and political rights are protected (esp. that of off-the-grid communities).
These Guilds are comprised of groups of like-minded people, who have joined together to effect a change, by providing an essential service to the Global Village Community in an ecologically responsible and ethical manner.
Our members focus on implementing: Sustainable Innovation; Ecological Methodologies leading to Reduced Carbon-Footprint; Intentional Permaculture Communities (who have embraced meaningfully, the Permaculture Paradigm); Right Action and Right Livelihood (through fair trade); Promoting Educational Activities that are in harmony with the Laws of Life that Gaia (the Earth viewed as a living conscious entity) employs on a day-to-day basis.
