Housing of the Future

eco village

As the world looks for better models for human settlement, the Ecovillage combines the best of the old village atmosphere with modern sustainable design to build a living space that is socially and environmentally positive.


A genuine Ecovillage will restore and protect habitat, biodiversity and ecological values to the land, allow people to live lightly on the planet through sustainable design and sharing resources, and encourages a real sense of community by providing physical spaces and social opportunities that allow people to build friendships and social networks. Another important focus is health – encouraging good nutrition, more physical activity and active lifestyles as good preventative health care. Therefore an ecovillage should be pedestrian friendly, not car dominated, to encourage people to walk, cycle and use their bodies as they are designed to be used and to allow children to reclaim public spaces and play in safety.


here is a list of 436 Eco Villages at present that are in existence around the globe:
