FIRST OF ITS KIND IN EUROPE

Huella Verde Mallorca, as we think, offers a contemporary blend of living, working, leisure and shopping, with an agenda to make a difference on this planet.
Recognizing the needs of the islanders and many foreigners who live here, we began promoting an initiative of “Silicon Valley” sustainable eco-development that offers a new way of working and living: 120 energy-saving innovative eco-houses with working space for eco-startups, entrepreneurs and other creative minds.

What is an Ecovillage?

An ecovillage is an intentional or traditional community using local participatory processes to holistically integrate ecological, economic, social, and cultural dimensions of sustainability in order to regenerate social and natural environments.

The motivation for ecovillages is the choice and commitment to reverse the gradual disintegration of supportive social/cultural structures and the upsurge of destructive environmental practices on our planet. For millenia, people have lived in communities close to nature, and with supportive social structures. Many of these communities, or “ecovillages”, exist to this day and are struggling for survival. Ecovillages are now being created intentionally, so people can once more live in communities that are connected to the Earth in a way that ensures the well-being of all life-forms into the indefinite future.
Ecovillages are one solution to the major problems of our time – the planet is experiencing the limits to growth, and our lives are often lacking meaningful content. According to increasing numbers of scientists, we have to learn to live sustainably if we are to survive as a species. The United nations launched its Global Environment Outlook 2000 report, based on reports from UN agencies, 850 individuals and over 30 environmental institutes, concluding that “the present course is unsustainable and postponing action is no longer an option.” Ecovillages, by endeavoring for lifestyles which are “successfully continuable into the indefinite future”, are living models of sustainability, and examples of how action can be taken immediately.
They represent an effective, accessible way to combat the degradation of our social, ecological and spiritual environments. They show us how we can move toward sustainability in the 21st century (Agenda 21). In 1998, ecovillages were first officially named among the United Nations’ top 100 listing of Best Practices, as excellent models of sustainable living.

What does our eco-village mean?

​It means living, working and having a good time in the most natural and healthy way: growing vegetables and herbs on vertical green walls, self-producing, using green energy from roof solar panels, rain harvesting for domestic and public use, composting with advanced recycling, commuting with public electric mini-cars within the eco-village, enjoying the organic variety in the village shopping arcade, and more.

“Working in harmony with nature and people promises a long and prominent continuity”

Who will be the neighbours?

​Creative people who are environmentally responsible and who implement an ecological lifestyle; People who share sustainability values and take action to conserve the greatness of nature and to maintain ecosystem integrity for future generations; People who share with you their professional experience, enabling you to develop your own local business with your common interest.

“Individuals would have the opportunity to  develop their work while ​being exposed to other creative minds”

What else will you find there?

A designated multi-purpose artistic learning environment, an art gallery, a theatre and a music center, a kindergarten, a sports center with a public swimming pool, an ecological shopping area and pharmacy, vacation villas, a bar and an organic restaurant, all to be designed according to our environmental principles.
