Ecovillages

A Practical Guide to Sustainable Communities

This book explores the background and history of the ecovillages movement. Jan Bang has spent a lifetime working in alternative communities, ranging from Kibbutz in Israel to his present home in the Camphill community of Solborg in Norway. Throughout, the book is packed with handy tips, useful insights and sage advice. Issues discussed include leadership and conflict management, house design, building techniques, farming and food production, water and sewage, energy sources and alternative economics. Theory is brought to life in a series of striking Living Example case-studies from around the world.
