“The Indefinite Future”: Ideas, Ideals, and Idealized Ideology in the Global Eco-Village

We ethnographically studied three ecovillages in three countries. Relocation of production is a common theme, along with other reconnections—people with food, people with land, people with indigenous practices, and people with other people. Our ethnographic ecovillage encounter provides provisional answers to questions about transitions to a sustainable post-consumer culture.
