Environmental Anthropology Engaging Ecotopia : Bioregionalism, Permaculture, and Ecovillages, Hardback Book

Environmental Anthropology Engaging Ecotopia : Bioregionalism, Permaculture, and Ecovillages Hardback

Edited by Joshua Lockyer, James R. Veteto

Part of the Environmental Anthropology and Ethnobiology series

Description

In order to move global society towards a sustainable "ecotopia," solutions must be engaged in specific places and communities, and the authors here argue for re-orienting environmental anthropology from a problem-oriented towards a solutions-focused endeavor.

Using case studies from around the world, the contributors - scholar-activists and activist-practitioners - examine the interrelationships between three prominent environmental social movements: bioregionalism, a worldview and political ecology that grounds environmental action and experience; permaculture, a design science for putting the bioregional vision into action; and ecovillages, the ever-dynamic settings for creating sustainable local cultures.
