eurotopia is the European directory for living in community. The 414 pages contain a listing of 336 intentional communities in 23 countries throughout Europe with their addresses and specific characteristics. In short texts the communities present themselves through their main areas of work and interest, along with their locations, goals and dreams. It provides a lively insight into a way of life which is attracting more people every day. Despite a great diversity of social, political, economic, spiritual and ecological values, they all share a commitment to exploring new co-operative ways of life. By realising their own visions, these people are responding to the need for change in our world.
The information was researched over a period ranging from the autumn of 1999 to the autumn of 2000, translated into English and published without changes.
eurotopia provides answers to many questions about communal and co-operative living, such as:
How can I get to know or join a community? Where am I welcome as a working guest? Are there communities who share my ideas about an ecological life? What national, European and international community-related networks already exist? How should I visit (or not visit) a community? Where can I find a vegan permaculture project centred on spirituality and located in Finland? What is the L’Arche Movement in France? Where can I find more information on co-operative and communal living…?
eurotopia is a practical guide for everyone seeking a community to live in. Furthermore, it is a useful networking tool for the communities. It is an inspiring resource for people who are interested in alternatives to convetional life, economy, ecology, politics, medicine or other areas. eurotopia inspires to think about such issues as our attitude towards money, ecological behaviour in daily life, how to deal with conflicts in groups and how to live with handicapped people.
336 real and existing examples of co-operative living may encourage realisation of our own dreams for an alternative life. In eurotopia communities report on their experiments and experiences - Living Visions in Europe!
