When somebody mentions the term “eco-village” most people think of rows upon rows of identical spaceship like, wooden & glass houses with glimmering solar panelled roofs, sticking out of the ground as if ready to take off. Eco-house and eco-communities don’t have to feel like a strange little oasis from Mars, the technology is such nowadays that you don’t have to compromise the look and feel of your eco-home in order to be environmentally friendly.
Living Villages is a company which specialises in creating eco-houses and eco-communities, creating sustainable housing which respectfully interacts with the surrounding natural habitat. Further than this these eco-villages; communities encourage wildlife to the area, by providing new local habitats for Wildlife.
Living Villages was setup in 1994 as the Living Village Trust. The trust was formed in 1994 with the remit to research inspiring communities around the world, looking particularly at how these communities were established, trying to identify the successful formula which made these special places, such wonderful environments to live in. At the same time Living Villages kept at the forefront of eco-friendly technology participating in workshops, seminars and organised talks on environmental issues and technologies, with a view to creating the perfect living environment for human interaction and the surrounding environment, creating these “eco friendly living” communities, benefiting society as a whole.
Living villages use state of the art technology to create carbon neutral eco-friendly villages, at the same time not compromising on traditional village life, by promoting community togetherness, environmental consciousness, and a way of life often forgotten by modern society.
Living Villages put a lot of emphasis on achieving an eco-friendly environment not just through technology but also placing great stall on how households interact with each other, thus incorporating such focus into their eco-village design. Living Villages don’t want just to create homes which are energy efficient; they also want to create whole communities which are perfect for family “living” providing an infrastructure perfect for social interaction encouraging a strong community bond.
