Perfect match - Naturism and Sustainable Living

There are many naturist villages, but none are ecological/sustainable.

There are more and more sustainable communities, but as far as I know none of them allow naturisme.

 

I would like to live and work in a sustainable community in the south of Europe.
As far as I know there is one place like this in the Dominican Republic called Cambium www.cambiumbene.com.
There is also something similar in Brazil. Here is a nice friendly video of Colina del Sol. But I would like to stay in Europe.

Being naked and not be ashamed of it or judge about it, gives a great sense of freedom. Besides the fact that the warm sun and wind on your skin feels great, it's purity, serenity, peaceful and feels in harmony with nature. It is the ultimate acceptance of ourselves and others. Respect for each other and nature is first priority. This is why I feel like it naturally fits in with eco/sustainable living. Of course everybody in the community would have to be a naturist or be very open minded to it.

 

I have been born and raised on a farm in the Netherlands. It was my dream to stay and live on that farm so I became an expert in Natural Horsemanship and became self employed. We've build an indoor arena and made it into a beautiful place. But ... it is a lot of work and the mortgage and costs of living are high. A few years ago I nearly had a burn out and that is when my spiritual search really began. Living in the NOW is becoming easier and easier. I would love to take it further and live a simple life in harmony with nature. Sustainable living seems to be the perfect choice. And if that could be done naked most of the time in a warm climate...that would be a perfect match.

Thank you for your comments and for your acceptance on this topic. I don't mind a short winter. It's natural and a great time a year for sauna :-).

 

 

And I agree, the infrastructure is very important and I would love working on it. And for some jobs, wearing clothes is very practical :-).

 

I guess I just want to find like minded people and I still have a lot to learn about sustainable living.

I love this website. Thank you for creating this environment.

South Europe is indeed also too cold for being naked during the winter time. I checked out all of this... The only place where it is possible are the canary islands which are too small for my personal taste... I need a bit more the feeling of vastness... Well if you are fine being surrounded by the ocean on small islands than this could be for you. Another thing with the nudist thing is that I am also a fan of it but have experienced(in warm tropical regions) that there can be many biting insects... Europe is awesome regarding this since we have only mosquitos and those only bother for a few month in the year at dawn times...

The only problem with trying to establish a naturist community in Southern Europe would still be the cold in the most practical sense don't you think?  Brrrrrrrr  S. Europe is warmer but it is not Brazil for sure....

 

An EcoVillage needs to be viewed as 'infrastructure' and whoever lives in them and the lifestyles they choose are the 'content'.  That is the beauty of sustainable community models is that the infrastructure supports self sustainability regardless of the ideologies of the people who choose live in them - the basic premise of an EcoVillage would be to make sure people know how to manage practical things like composting toilets and the alternative energy systems etc.   

 

The longevity of the community will of course depend upon the healthy cohesion of the collective that lives in it but that is what only time can tell.  When we think of EcoVillages we need to focus on the infrastructure (ie the dwellings, sewage, food systems, etc) and establishing legal development criteria that can be duplicated throughout all countries where codes and zoning laws now prohibit.  Naturism can then occupy such a village and live in peace!  We look forward to following your journey and who knows, perhaps you will meet the right people/situation in this community network :-)  

Cheers!
