5 Extraordinary DIY Eco Homes With the earth shifting so rapidly, we need to build housing that reflects our connections with the earth and with one another. There are so many different types of off grid, sustainable living houses that are incredibly cheap to create! Here are a few good ones: Earthships are probably the most popular type of self sustaining housing. They are so incredibly beautiful and it all comes from recycled materials! Integral Sustainability Education The basic ISE approach is “Teaching what we are living” and "Living what we are teaching". We found, that sharing daily life as a group with a teacher has a great value. Unlike the traditional western education, our pedagogy is focused on life wisdom, practical experience and the individual process of the student in addition to theoretical studies.

Strauss–Howe generational theory The Strauss–Howe generational theory, created by authors William Strauss and Neil Howe, identifies a recurring generational cycle in American history. Strauss and Howe lay the groundwork for the theory in their 1991 book Generations, which retells the history of America as a series of generational biographies going back to 1584.[1] In their 1997 book The Fourth Turning, the authors expand the theory to focus on a fourfold cycle of generational types and recurring mood eras in American history.[2] Their consultancy, LifeCourse Associates, has expanded on the concept in a variety of publications since then. The theory was developed to describe the history of the United States, including the 13 colonies and their Anglo antecedents, and this is where the most detailed research has been done.

IPCC Fifth Assessment Report The decision to prepare a Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) was taken by the members of the IPCC at its 28th Session (09-10 April 2008, Budapest, Hungary). Following the election of the new IPCC Bureau at the 29th Session of the IPCC (31 August - 04 September 2008, Geneva, Switzerland) and discussions about future IPCC activities at the 30th Session of the IPCC (21-23 April 2009, Antalya, Turkey), a Scoping Meeting was held (13-17 July 2009, Venice, Italy) to develop the scope and outline of the AR5. The resulting outlines for the three Working Group contributions to the AR5 were approved by the 31st Session of the IPCC in Bali (26-29 October 2009).

Man Builds 2 Earth Dome Cabins For Less Than $10,000 (Pictures) by Mike Barrett Are you interested in exploring alternative means of sustainable living, but don’t think it can be done? Though not as common as it should be, many individuals choose to live off-the-grid and rely on themselves by collecting rainwater, planting gardens, using alternative energy, and more. People are even building their own little ‘Earth dome’ houses. - Ecovilas/ecovillages Hello everybody and thanks again to Ezio for all the work and time he's spending to keep us informed about this project. I feel that living in an ecovillage would be really the right choice for me, the only one who would answer the question that eats me and which I struggle with every (almost) single day: how do I have to live? how can I be happy, at peace with myself and helpful to somebody else?

The Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources Creating content isn't always a walk in the park. (In fact, it can sometimes feel more like a sprint in a swamp.) While other parts of business and marketing are becoming increasingly automated, content creation is still a very manual job. What's Really Warming the World? Climate deniers blame natural factors; NASA data proves otherwise Climate scientists tend not to report climate results in whole temperatures. Instead, they talk about how the annual temperature departs from an average, or baseline. They call these departures "anomalies." They do this because temperature anomalies are more consistent in an area than absolute temperatures are. For example, the absolute temperature atop the Empire State Building may be different by several degrees than the absolute temperature at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

Recipe for Change ~ Earthship Documentary & Review The Earthship team take to Ushuaia, Argentina to set up a sustainable earth-ship community in a part of the world that is in desperate need of something new. Ushuaia was once a thriving place. The water was fresh, the air was clean, and every moment was a beautiful exploration into nature. But as the human population grew, more and more people flooded into the environment and slowly started damaging the ecosystem. The human waste was not treated with care, and the entire bay area was filled up with shit. korAkor Camp What to expect A quoi s'attendre What we offer
