Ecovillages: Islands of the Future?


The time of crisis and uncertainty that we are currently experiencing is also a time of fundamental changes, a “Great Turning.” Along with the time of crisis comes the possibility to change perspectives and to look beyond the limits of the current paradigm. Von Lüpke suggests that ecovillages are a response to this need for change: they are “islands of the future” that are helping to develop new ways of thinking, new social tools, and new scientific and social approaches.
