Eco Settlements is a website and blog dedicated to bringing you the cutting edge in design of settlements that fulfil basic human critiera:
- Food security – by having food production close to the settlement
- Energy security
- Lowest possible leakage of nutrients – reducing burden on surrounding eco-systems whilst reducing costs for import
- Human size
- Ownership that means residents can take eco-responsibility for the area they live in
- Social security – the design of the customs and practices gives every member the security of belonging and the support of like-minded
In short, places to live that are sustainable, intentional, economic and attractive.
