What is an Ecovillage
“These [places] are characterised by striving to take a systemic approach to integrating the human environment with the natural environment. Thus ecovillages aim to develop green buildings, grow organic food, use renewable energy, create a strong sense of community, use participatory governance system, and teach what they are learning through practical, hands-on methods.”
(Liz Walker, Ithaca Ecovillage)
Ecovillages are a manifestation of conscious human innovation and creativity: groups of people living out their principals, regenerating their environment, and increasing their sense of belonging and purpose as a community.
