Sunny Hill

We are a space of cooperation, innovation, and supportive environment for research, education and active practice of sustainable development.


We use appropriate technologies to build a home for our sustainable community, in order to revive potentials of Istria in harmony with tradition and sustainability.


The guiding principle of Sunny Hill is cohabiting and collaborating in the living social laboratory.


We explore, combining modern and traditional, solutions for social and environmental challenges.


Sunny Hill Association runs projects, networks with other organisations in Slovenia and abroad, formally hosts volunteers and organises events. Sunny Hill Association is a member of ECOLISEGENPlan B for Slovenia and Local Action Group LAS Istre.


The Cooperative owns and leases real estate (land and houses) and manages it. In 2020, the cooperative owned two houses, which it renovated in 2016, and a ruin that is to be renovated by 2022.


Visitors’ first experience of Sunny Hill is usually through the community. In essence, that’s the organisation of everyday life in the house and on the land. The core of the community are the Cooperative members, then come longer term inhabitants and finally shorter-term guests, visitors, volunteers etc.
