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.
