Ecovillages: New Frontiers for Sustainability by Johnathan Dawson. Foreword by Caroline Lucas MEP.
Are you considering moving into an Eco Village? There is a growing number of EcoVillages in Australia, meeting the needs of those people who really want to minimise their impact on earth, and maximise their happiness and wellbeing. Looking for the best for yourself and your family is a natural response, and understanding how and why Ecovillages work will help you decide your next step.
Perhaps you are trying to make your community more sustainable; this little book will help by showing you how to live in a more ecologically sound and sustainable way.
From the back cover: In recent years, ecovillages - loal communities which aim to minimise their ecological impact but maximise human wellbeing and happiness - have proliferated worldwide. They incorporate a wealth of radical ideas and approaches which can be traced back to Schumacher, Ghandi, eco-feminism, and the alternative education movement. This Briefing describes the history and potential of the ecovillage movement.
