Living in The Future

Show Summary

Living in the Future is a web-based video project on the story of the Ecovillage Pioneers, a passionate community and low impact way of living that started in Wales before traveling to all over the world, from Australia, Spain, Scotland and Ireland. Paul Wimbush has spent most of his life building up a knowledge of low impact living and building skills that he puts to use as he travels to each of these communities in order to share what they are doing to leave as little effect on the environment around them. In Lammas, the United Kingdomâ��s first ever-planned Ecovillages has houses built from a combination of recycled and natural materials with detachable dwellings capable of blending into the landscapes. In Somerset, England, an eco-community called Tinker's Bubble cooks their food over wood stoves and open fires. In South Hams, Devon, the Landmatters Co-operative uses a system called permaculture, which is the management of the land with a focus on bio-diversity and wildlife while still providing for the community in the way of food, energy, water, and shelter. Living in the Future shares what these world communities have learned and applied to creating sustainable ways of living.
