I would like to share my ideas about GRB ecocommunity design.
Inspired by ancient Cretan artefacts, high technology, gardening, the Global Ecovillage Network, recycling and running a household in different environments, I am creating the vision of an international village community in Crete. How will 400 shareholders, using the miracles of the communications age, enjoy life fully and keep their ecofootprints small?
My ecocommunity will be an environment for people who like to live clean and healthy, walk in beauty and eat food from their own little gardens. A typical little terrace garden would include a couple of citrus trees, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, onions and garlic, as well as a wide variety of herbs. The olive gardens could be a community project… what more do I need than fresh vegetables, fruits, olive oil, wind, sun, clean water and a beautiful view? Of course there will be the fastest internet connections everywhere, clean energy, music, dance, open hearts and minds. I imagine my village‘s old system concrete buildings transformed in a way inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser‘s art.
I also play with the idea of an artist ecocommunity, rebuilding one of the Cretan palaces as a centre of sciences, art and education. Why not? Artists got to follow their ideas.
Another idea is a New Age women‘s community in Cyprus, Aphrodite‘s island. A place of art, natural beauty and healing.
The bank is always on my mind. While I am observing a situation, my mind often automatically produces an image of what the situation could look like, in the new system where money is no problem.
