8. Affordable Housing

Updated: Apr 30

Minimalism allows for affordable living.

Eco Villages Australia aims to provide affordable, rented housing (not to be confused with 'assisted housing'). This will be achieved in part by building smaller, more practical housing and sharing living costs such as rates, internet, cars, electricity, etc. Eco village residents can enjoy many efficiencies of scale for example spending less time cooking, less food waste, buying food in bulk, sharing maintenance tasks/costs, etc. For more information about how the eco village will be financed, read article sixteen which outlines the financial model.
