Sustainable way of life and environmental chaos: a textual analysis of an expert panel held at Brazilian meeting of alternative communities
Keywords:ecovillage, sustainable lifestyle, alternative way of life
This study of the views of Brazilian experts on Sustainable Way of Life corroborates the idea that a capitalist model – based on consumption, linear production systems and disconnected with nature – has made the city way of life unsustainable. It also suggests that these struggles point to a move from urban environmental chaos to a new reality, as well as the difficulties in making it happen. As a confrontation with chaos, a new order represents a different way of reorganizing oneself and the group, in search of a new social and environment ideal reconnected and inspired by virtuous cycles as seen in nature.
