Bringing people together to create low impact affordable housing in socially & ecologically harmonious communities
A Warm Welcome.
Our Vision is the creation of peaceful, healthy, sustainable eco-villages throughout the world.
Our Social Network has been designed so that people can find others to create an eco-village with. You can set up a profile showing what you want, and you can also set up a profile for your ideal eco village and invite people to join you in creating that dream, then form a group to decide your own course of action.
The front pages are information pages to get you thinking about what is possible and ways to make it happen, allowing for visitors to post related comment and links.
We hope you enjoy using the site, and find it both informative and rewarding.
“Eco-Villages are human scale, full featured settlements which are harmlessly integrated into the natural world in a way that is supportive of healthy human development and can be successfully continued into the indefinite future.” Robert Gilman (Context Institute 1991: 7).

Sustainable Eco Villages is a social network set up for people to find others interested in forming eco villages. Through the network users can form or join a group that may then go on to form an eco village together.
The site has 3 purposes:
1. The social network for finding others and the free exchange of information and ideas.
2. To provide resources and links of information related to sustainable living and setting up an eco villages.
3. Eventually setting up an non-profit organisation to provide support and low interest loans to groups that are planning to start an eco village.
