ECOVILLAGE / Communal house, own organic farming, a professionally run livestock farm, various network models in permaculture and economics.

In step with an increasingly developed materialism with economic growth, all parts of the world have developed alternative ways of adapting to «everyday life». Club of Rome wrote Limits to growth 50 years ago, when the UN's first conference on the environment, the Stockholm Conference, also took place.
