I have a friend who would be VERY interested in something like this - but he speaks absolutely NO English.  Is there anything available in French?  (Preferably in France, of course...)

Re: copier & me demander de t'expliquer

Bonjour,
Je regrette - je ne parle pas beaucoup de Francais.
We are a local regional group working the Cascadia bioregion.
I can't speak for elsewhere but I agree, this kind of workshop would be
useful and well-recieved anywhere.
Thanks for your interest...

OUR Ecovillage

Aloha all,

I was recently on Vancouver Island briefly, at just the right time to get a
guided tour and Q&A session with one of the founders of OUR Ecovillage.

They have done amazing work, most notably (to my bureaucratophobic mind) in
that they have, through persistence and ongoing education of civil servants,
enabled the creation of a whole new zoning category very well suited to the
needs of ecovillages (as it ought to be, since they pretty much wrote it).

Besides that they've got the bureaucracy bought into cob, straw bale, round
wood and other hybrid natural building technologies, permaculture, etc. and
have got their larger community bought into what they're doing too.  They get
donations up the wazoo.  They even got government grants to work on getting
the government to appreciate and support lots of that stuff.

Plus they run some very exciting sounding learning opportunities in
permaculture, natural and alternative building, community-building, etc. with
all sorts of fun and interesting guest instructors/facilitators/etc.

Joe Bob says "check it out"...

Aloha,

>   i would like to hear your answers to the questions :  what is an ecovilage ?
> what makes ecovillages a sustainable solution.?
>
>   If you know any papers that gives good answers please share .

One place to start is the Global Ecovillage Network site (also the hosts of
this list):

http://gen.ecovillage.org/

Try the "What is an ecovillage" link...

See also the Intentional Communities site:

http://ic.org/

They include ecovillages as one form of IC...

Also look at self-definitions by existing ecovillages - some of the older/more
established ones have refined their information through their own praxis. 
Examples of communities that have been around for "a while" include OUR
Ecovillage, Crystal Waters, Earthaven, Sirius, Occidental Arts and Ecology
Center, ZEGG, Dancing Rabbit, Dreamtime, The Farm and so on.  There are
listings on the GEN site above.  I have some links on my Community resource
page here (some may be moved or dead, I am way behind on maintenance):

http://www.eco-living.net/resourcedb/staticdb/community.html

cheers,
John S.
