Lessons for Sustainable Community

by Karen T. Litfin
Publication Date: 15/11/2013
RRP  $36.95 $33.50
In a world of dwindling natural resources and mounting
environmental crisis, who is devising ways of living that will work
for the long haul? And how can we, as individuals, make a
difference? To answer these fundamental questions, Professor Karen
Litfin embarked upon a journey to many of the world?s
ecovillagesNintentional communities at the cutting-edge of
sustainable living. From rural to urban, high tech to low tech,
spiritual to secular, she discovered an under-the-radar global
movement making positive and radical changes from the ground

In this inspiring and insightful book, Karen Litfin shares her
unique experience of these experiments in sustainable living
through four broad windows - ecology, economics, community, and
consciousness - or E2C2. Whether we live in an ecovillage or a
city, she contends, we must incorporate these four key elements if
we wish to harmonize our lives with our home planet.

Not only is another world possible, it is already being born in
small pockets the world over. These micro-societies, however, are
small and time is short. Fortunately - as Litfin persuasively
argues - their successes can be applied to existing social
structures, from the local to the global scale, providing
sustainable ways of living for generations to come.
