Including more than 300 full-color photographs and diagrams, this beautiful book highlights 20 best practice designs from ecovillages around the world to show how we can live lightly on the planet no matter where on earth we live. Features Findhorn in Scotland, Auroville in India, and 18 others.
This book provides a view into the future. Its many diverse examples show solutions to particular times and places.
The chronological progression from oldest to newest shows an interesting development–from projects that originally had a more spiritual origin, like Findhorn, or socially responsible origins like Solheimar, to fully-fledged ecologically planned villages that provide ready-built homes for anyone and everyone interested in making a difference, like Hurdal and Permatopia.
The concept of ecovillages is no longer a marginal movement but a powerful force for change–a change that is happening not by revolution but by gentle evolution, the natural way.
