About The Summit

GCON brings together experts from the design, engineering, financial, health, political, municipal, educational, religious and other sectors to examine / promote the ideals of NeoRetroism as a viable solution to developing 21st century villages. NeoRetroism is the advancement of a philosophy which advocates the re-creation of old world characteristics in modern-day development environments. Its focus aims to strengthen the notion that building villages creates stronger, more viable and sustainable communities.
