Ecological

Ecological concerns are fundamental to the design and development of ecovillages and sustainable communities. An ecological village is integrated into the landscape in a way that benefits both humans and their encompassing environs. Designers will take great care to ensure that life-supporting natural functions are not only preserved but enhanced whenever possible. The strategy here is one of working with Nature rather than against Nature. The ultimate goal of sustainable settlement design is the creation of self-reliant, self-maintaining, self-regenerating ‘living systems’ that can assume a life of their own.
