What a great invention! The Ecovillage, while still highly marginal cannot be said to be gaining support even in the current environment. And yet, what a logical way to go.

Local employment, local produce, local waste disposal, water treatment and water collecting. But how feasible in the current legislature and what support is there for this concept?

In the world of individualism and consumerism, naturally, such an idea gets little press and little support and remains today the subject of near-communism and marginal communities.

When and how could we bring about a transformation in modern ways of living to show the benefits of such an approach?

Perhaps Prince Charles could do more as he was one of the great supporters of these ideas. Speak Up Charles, bring your voice back to centre stage and show a little courage!
