→ Latest research: Households in Danish eco-villages have 30-50% lower carbon footprint than the average Danish household. Members of eco-villages (average carbon footprint of 8.4 tonnes) have a slightly higher life satisfaction, compared to the most consuming quarter of Danes (average CO2 footprint of 22.6 tonnes).
Shared common facilities: Laundry, kitchen, dining room, living rooms, meditation room, gym, cars (coming), guest rooms, studio, library …
Daily shared meals: Our community kitchen provides 2 high quality nutritiously complete meals a day and some days a snack in the afternoon or evening. The bulk of the food consists of whole grains, beans, seeds & local vegetables, complemented with smaller amounts of fruits, nuts, and animal foods, all prepared using macrobiotic principles.
Shared tasks: With such a large common area, shared food and so much activity, expect to use 2 hours/day and 12 days/year on community tasks.
Rooms are private.
Enterprises are private or co-created by subgroups.
Success in regenerative enterprises, communities or cultures critically depends on the level of personal development of the people that co-create these collectives.
We recognize that our collective thriving depends on our individual
Perceiving conflicts and our own negative emotions as an indicator that there is unmet needs and aspirations (in ourselves or others) moves us forward on our path to personal and communal growth.
We eat slow foods as they increase our ability to compassionately connect to ourselves, each other & the environment.
Our community kitchen is free of sugar, coffee, food additives and other stimulants since they prevent us from compassionately connecting to ourselves, each other & the environment.
We make wonderful desserts and snacks with slower sweeteners and enjoy grain coffee and herbal teas. Personal use of sugar, coffee and other stimulants are expected to be gradually reduced.
