Tiny houses and sustainable communities

PRESENTED ON FEB 28, 2018
IN SUNSHINE COAST @ VOL 25

Jimmy Hirst has been traveling the world researching Tiny Housing, sustainable communities (Eco Villages) for the past five years and looking at progressive living ideals. He believes we now have the need, the technology (like with Blockchain), and the consciousness to facilitate a shift in the western living paradigm, to help bring the mainstream population into embracing more sustainable and connective communities. He believes it’s time to reinhabit the village, holistically regenerating human and natural values, to last for generations to come.

Creating Sustainable Cities

BY CHRISTIAN VASSIE
@ VOL 15 ON MAR 16, 2018

Christian Vassie explains how creating sustainable cities requires citizens and politicians to park their differences on the energy transition and other environmental issues. With York having had no Local Plan or vision for its future for over 60 years as a direct result of the inability of its politicians and citizens to work constructively together, and with climate change an ever-growing challenge, we have to dump the party rosettes and get serious. Fortunately there are plenty of other cities across the EU to show us how it is done.
