Ecovillage, a concept for the future (English)
Abstract [en]

Jönköping's municipality requested a diploma work witch would present the experiences, as arisen during the existence of the echo village Smeden.

To recive information for the background, literature at the university library were searched at the database "Libris" with words like "echo village" and "ecological living".

Data was retrieved from 28 questionnaires that were sent out to the inhabitants of the echo village Smeden. The questionnaires contained questions about experiences, opinions, ideas and thoughts about living in this echo village. The results were analyzed and presented by diagrams and tables and showed that the inhabitants where most unsatisfied with the sewer and the system of the toilet. In the opposite the inhabitants experienced that the remaining systems were in satisfactory and the majority of the inhabitants were very pleased with their living conditions.

Conclusions of this study are that an echo village would be a suitable alternative to an ordinary living and that ecological living would be something that would work well even in the future. An important thing to remember is that the systems of the households must be easy for the inhabitants to maintain otherwise the environmental thinking would be in risk of failure if some don’t have the energy to manage this properly.
