Today, there are ecovillages in 70 countries across six continents. This video series will explore some of them.

Introducing Lammas, the UK's first planned Ecovillage. The Houses will use low-impact architecture which uses a combination of recycled and natural materials. The project is essentially a self-build affair consisting of five detached dwellings and one terrace of four dwellings. There will be a combination of building styles including straw bale, earth sheltered, timber frame and cob. The houses will feature the latest environmental technologies and design techniques. The dwellings will blend into the landscape. Indeed they will be largely made from elements of the landscape (for example turf roofs, cob walls, timber cladding).Lammas attained planning permission to build an ecovillage in Wales which combines the traditional smallholding model with the latest innovations in environmental design, green technology and permaculture. The proposal is for a new settlement of 9 eco-smallholdings, a campsite and a community hub building. It is sited on 76 acres of mixed pasture and woodland next to the village of Glandwr, Pembrokeshire
