Hi I’m Helen. Thanks for visiting!
Living in the Future is a personal journey towards discovering a more fulfilling and sustainable way of life. Whilst seeking a place to live with my young son, my journey led me to visit ecovillages and communities all around the world and finally, to live in a low impact community in Wales for 12 years. On this website, I share my experiences of the inspiring people and projects I found through documentary film and creative writing.
Where will YOUR journey take YOU?
You might be here because you’re looking to make a lifestyle change yourself. You might be interested in ways to live more sustainably, or in a more connected way with your community. You might be seeking to help create a society more resilient to the threats of climate change, peak oil, food insecurity and other destabilising factors. Whatever your motivation, I hope you’ll find your visit enjoyable, entertaining, educational and most of all, inspiring, as you watch, listen to and read stories of people who are being the change they want to see in the world.
You look after the Land, then the Land looks after you and you can look after each other.
