Eco-Living -- a low-impact lifestyle (video)

Climate change will change how we live in the future. There is a need for radical changes in the way we plan for, design and build our homes, to render them affordable and environmentally sustainable.

To live a low-impact lifestyle is to live lightly on the earth.

In essence, this means to intelligently and intensively manage our surrounding environment in order to maximise return (in the forms of energy, water, food, shelter and products) and minimise waste (through recycling, composting and energy efficient systems).

In practice, this means to adopt a land-based, simple, localised lifestyle that works with the land and natural cycles available to us.

In order to explore low-impact living, it is necessary to create an integrated system of dwellings and infrastructure able to support such a venture.
