What is a Kin’s
Domain? Countryside development programme
on Kin’s Domains are built from natural materials that don’t burden the
environment or people’s health. Such houses are built with regard to elements
of architectural heritage of the region, and on the principle of “low impact
housing”, using renewable sources of energy (biomass, solar energy, etc.)
are springing up all around the world as a response to the modern lifestyle.
They offer a practical solution to many problems of our time. Humanity is
facing the peak of resource growth, while our lives lack meaningful content.
Scientist are discovering we need to go towards sustainability in order to
survive as a species. UN has published a report;Global Environment Outlook
2000. It is based on the accounts of the UN agencies. 850 individuals and more
than 30 environmental institutes came to the conclusion that the present
direction of development is unsustainable and delaying with measures is
support a lifestyle that can easily be maintained in future. Life in
eco-villages is organized in such a way that it allows successful and long-
term self-sustainability for many generations. It also minimizes the
environmental footprint of the individual. They are models of sustainability
and a practical example of taking immediate measures. They are effectively
opposing the degradation of social, ecological, and spiritual milieus. The
increasing desire of many individuals and groups to live sustainably is a clear
sign that people need to be given the possibility of living in eco-villages.
villages should be undertaken in the spirit of research, and in support of the
development of families that wish to secure the quality of life on Earth for
generations to come, by living close to nature. All eco-villages and its
inhabitants bring many benefits to the area. They fill the vacuum in the
abandoned villages, they manage the cultural landscapes, they improve
demographic situations in the region, they add new contents/offers (tourism,
agriculture, crafts, services etc.). The residents of eco-villages are
environmentally aware, educated and creative people.
domain settlements are a new step in eco-village development. They share some
elements with general eco-villages: eco-building, recycling and reduction of
waste materials, organic food production, use of renewable energy sources,
alternative social and economic models and artistic expressions, etc. Kin’s
domain settlement is a type of eco-village that ensures upbringing of future
generations of families in safe, healthy social and natural environment. They
preserve natural heritage, taking into account cultural tradition and the
knowledge of our ancestors for many ages.
family in the Kin’s Domain settlement has 1 to 1.5 hectares of land that
encompasses housing, areas for the production of diverse food, domestic crafts,
and spiritual fulfillment. On this small area self- sufficiency of the family
is ensured. On the domain the family produces food and also a variety of products
and raw materials (fuel, wood, fibers, natural fertilizers), herbs and
handicrafts. Being in touch with the Earth and establishing a circulation of
goods, energy and information between families in the settlement creates
favorable conditions for the physical and mental well-being of the residents.
