New Frontiers for Sustainability

Publisher : Green Books

Pages : 96

Format : Paperback

Description : In the last twenty years ecovillages – local communities which aim to minimize their ecological impact but maximize human wellbeing and happiness – have been springing up all over the world. They incorporate a wealth of radical ideas and approaches which can be traced back to Schumacher, Gandhi, the 1960s and the alternative education movement.
The threads that are brought together in Ecovillages include:
Learning from the best elements in traditional and indigenous cultures
Alternative economy: community banks and currencies, and voluntary simplicity
Designing with nature: using permaculture design, eco-building, small-scale energy generation, waste management, low-impact transport systems etc
Organic, locally-based food production and processing
Reviving small-scale participatory governance, conflict facilitation, social inclusion and inter-generational community
Creating a culture of peace, and holistic, whole person education

In an age of diminishing oil supplies, the Briefing examines the lessons that we can learn from ecovillages to show us how to live in a more ecologically sound and sustainable way.
