AUTONOMOUS HOUSING: How to create an ECOVILLAGE

Le 27/7/05, V1 Par Benjamin LISAN Exemple d’écovillage : le village de Végan dans l’Ardèche Dossier en construction. Permettre aux personnes blessées par la vie de se ressourcer. Permettre aux personnes de se réaffirmer, de renforcer pour pouvoir se replonger dans la société. Bref un lieu de vie pour rendre les gens plus heureux et/ou plus solides. En effet, même si la notion de « dureté » du monde, est ressenti différemment selon les individus, certains sont laissés en marge, au bord de la route, et n’arrivent jamais à s’en sortir. L’aide humanitaire, les aides sociales, le monde médical à destination des personnes fragiles sont les parentes pauvres du budget de l’état et des sociétés privées (elles sont la plupart du temps inexistantes dans les sociétés privées).

Ce projet s’inspire du projet « Jardin de lumière » [8] de François Thonier. De klarar sig utan att jobba – tack vare boende i kollektiv. Blueprint for a World That Works for Everyone - One Community Weekly Progress Update #362. The New Generation of Self-Created Utopias. THE EAST WIND COMMUNITY is hidden deep in the Ozarks of southern Missouri, less than 10 miles from the Arkansas border, surrounded by jagged hills and tawny fields.

The New Generation of Self-Created Utopias

Getting there requires traversing country roads that rise, dip and twist through chicken-wire-fenced farmsteads and grazing pastures cluttered with rusty agricultural equipment until you reach 1,145 acres of largely undeveloped highland forest, where cedar, oak, pine and mulberry create a dense canopy. Beneath that are 27 buildings and structures, including four large dormitories, nine personal shelters, a kitchen and dining facility, an automobile shop, a nut butter manufacturing plant and a cold-storage warehouse, all built over the years by the community since its founding in 1974.

Outside, farm animals — six piglets, 50 chickens, several dozen brown-and-white cows — crunch through the carpet of winter leaves. THE UNITED STATES HAS been a laboratory for experiments in alternative living since its founding. Highest Good Energy: Sustainable.

The beauty of the modern eco village is this: it helps us to regain our attunement with the natural world which most of us have lost in the rhythms of our industrialized lives.

The Valhalla Movement. Auroville: India’s famed utopian community struggles with crime and corruption. Photo by Maddy Crowell I thought a bottle of red wine would be an appropriate gift to bring to utopia. It was June in Pondicherry, a sleepy beach town off the Bay of Bengal characterized by its post-colonial French influence, and the mid-afternoon heat was oppressive, peaking just above 100 degrees. My clothes were damp by the time I found a liquor store, a grungy hole-in-the-wall shop on the corner of a typically South Indian pastel temple-crammed street. After a three-hour flight from Delhi to Chennai, and a “three-hour” bus ride from Chennai to Pondicherry that took more than five hours, I’d finally reached the last leg of the journey to the world’s largest existing spiritual utopia, Auroville, aka “the City of Dawn.”

New Social Media Platform to Unite the World’s Alternative Communities. As questions continue to surface about Facebook’s alleged role in aiding illegal government surveillance programs that track and monitor citizens, people are growing restless for a viable social media alternative that respects both personal privacy and the rule of law.

And we just might get that from “Miramir,” the “Social Network for Change” project testing the waters through a new Kickstarter campaign Max Sidorov, the mind behind the project, wants to develop a social networking experience that allows users to interact, create, develop and share information without the threat of privacy invasion and government intrusion (below is a short interview with Max). The Miramir project aims to integrate the current leading social media platforms into a unified, secure and completely private system that is sure to become an authoritarian government’s worst nightmare. Miramir users can also send messages to one another that “self-destruct,” meaning they can be erased – permanently. Within Reach (2013) Welcome to the 'Agrihood': Homes Built Around Working Farms. The local food movement has brought a different kind of neighborhood. One where instead of green ornamental areas, food is grown and community is built. This following article talks about some of them.

Gated communities with houses clustered around golf courses, swimming pools, party rooms and fitness centers are common in many suburban areas. But homes built adjacent to functioning farms? Welcome to "agrihoods" — pastoral ventures with healthier foods as their focus. This farm-to-table residential model has been sprouting up everywhere from Atlanta to Shanghai. "Real estate developers are looking for the next big thing to set them apart," said Ed McMahon, senior resident fellow with the Urban Land Institute in Washington.
