Earth Rights see the ecovllage as a multi-dimensional supportive social environment with a low-impact way of life that integrates various aspects of ecological design, permaculture, ecological building, green production, alternative energy, community building and much more. Ecovillages draw inspiration and practices from the best ways of living on the planet from both the past and the present. They are learning and living centers showing a way towards a brighter future for all.
They have established the Global Land Tool Network which is undertaking vital work in the field of land rights and freeing up bureaucracy surrounding local economies and markets. This highly complex but essential work is detailed on their website, which outlines the goals, objectives and methods of helping people in some of the poorest regions of the work secure rights to land and in doing so accessing tools that allow them to make livings which will take them out of poverty.
