In 30 years time, the world will have to support a population of 10 billion people! It’s clear we need to re-think how we use the resources of the world. Some of the brightest minds we have are engineering solutions, one of those being James Ehrlich, founder of ReGen Villages.

ReGen villages is sustainable living at its best, the concept is that everything you need to live a happy and sustainable life will be in the footprint of your community.

“A ReGen Village will uphold five core principles: energy positive homes, door-step high-yield organic food production, mixed renewable energy and storage, water and waste recycling, and empowerment of local communities.”

#ReGen Villages has already started to build its pilot community in the Netherlands. The neighbourhood of Almere, 25 minutes east of Amsterdam, will consist of 25 homes. We will certainly be watching with interest!

While we can’t all move to an eco-village there are many things, we can do to make our currents homes more energy efficient. As a construction company, this is very close to our hearts and is at the forefront of our minds when we are designing projects.
