Dimensions of Sustainability

The Global Ecovillage Network embraces a holistic approach to sustainability encompassing the Social, Cultural, Ecological and Economic dimensions of human existence.

Ecovillages are communities in which people feel supported by and responsible to those around them. They provide a deep sense of belonging to a group. They are small enough that everyone feels safe, empowered, seen and heard. People are then able to participate in making decisions that effect their own lives and that of the community on a transparent basis.
