"Living Routes' mission is to create opportunities to live and learn within human-scale communities that are consciously striving to live well and lightly. By offering positive visions and "stories" for humanity and the planet, ecovillages offer ideal "campuses" for students to explore possible futures, both in the world and in their own lives. " [1]
