Ecotopia: bio-regioanlism, permaculture and ecovillages (book)

ENVIRONMENTAL ANTHROPOLOGY ENGAGING ECOTOPIA: Bioregionalism, Permaculture, and Ecovillages

The authors argue for re-orienting environmental anthropology from a problem-oriented towards a solutions-focused endeavor. Using case studies from around the world, the contributors examine the interrelationships between three prominent environmental social movements: bioregionalism, a worldview and political ecology that grounds environmental action and experience; permaculture, a design science for putting the bioregional vision into action; and ecovillages, the ever-dynamic settings for creating sustainable local cultures.
