Ecovillage Experiments Around The World

Having come to the realization that international treaties, top-down, government programs, and even academic research isn't going to get us out of the environmental mess we are in, Professor Karen Litfin set out to study communities that are trying to live sustainably. She researched 14 ecovillages intensively from four perspectives: ecological, economic, social and spiritual sustainability. She concludes that these ecovillages, located in different continents and settings, have a lot of commonalities that serve as a model for how we can all live our lives where we are today.
