July 16, 2018 in Brussels Press Club (Brussels, Belgium), the Eastern European Association of the Greens discussed an important topic: “Global warming – ways to prevent.”
Participants of the round table analyzed the problem of climate change on Earth and, in particular, in Europe. Thus, during the discussion, experts noted that since the beginning of the 20th century, the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system has increased by about 0.74 ° C, while about 2/3 of increase fall on the last decades, namely, after 1980. Each of the last three decades was warmer than the previous one.

Ecovillages are traditional or intentional communities whose goal is to become more socially, culturally, economically and ecologically sustainable. Ecovillages are consciously designed through locally owned, participatory processes to regenerate and restore their social and natural environments. Most range from a population of 50 to 150 individuals, although some are smaller, and traditional ecovillages are often much larger. Larger ecovillages often exist as networks of smaller subcommunities. Certain ecovillages have grown by the addition of individuals, families, or other small groups who are not necessarily members settling on the periphery of the ecovillage and effectively participating in the ecovillage community.
