Ecovillage is a settlement which combines sociocultural environment with a low–impact way of living. Choosing to live in ecovillage is choosing an alternative way to individualistic, materialistic and consumer-oriented lifestyle. This innovation deals with climate change, environmental pollution, resource shortages and social problems people face nowadays.
