The problem of nature conservation is relevant for many people in all corners of the earth. Living in big cities and small towns, all people feel the call of nature to varying degrees. Some serious people who want to change their lives and join nature resort to active actions, look for like-minded people and create ecovillages.
In essence, ecosettlement is a new way of life, the main one is the connection of man and nature, and the desire to live in harmony with the environment. However, this is not an isolated life from the outside world, the settlers are quite engaged in daily activities, go to work and study. In addition, the achievements of civilization scientific, technological, cultural are applied in practice in the ecovillage.

The future of ecovillages
Ecological settlements appeared relatively recently. In Europe and America, the first attempts to create settlements in which people live on the above principles appeared in the 1960s. farms of this type began to appear in Eurasia in the late 1990s, when environmental problems began to be actively discussed, and eco-villages became an alternative to developed megacities. As a result, about 30 such settlements are now known, but their number is increasing all the time. The people who live there are united by the idea of creating a community that will appreciate and protect the world around them. Now trends indicate that the future lies with ecological settlements, because when people fail to save their lives in big cities, they return to their roots, that is, to the bosom of nature.
