Hallingelille: An eco-community in motion
Hallingelille is one of the newer eco-communities in Denmark. We are situated in central Zealand, 10 km from Ringsted on the way to Roskilde. In October 2005 our community house was finished and since then, 20 houses have sprung up and a load of adults, children and animals have moved in. We have settled in well in Hallingelille, yet still we are moving onwards and upwards. We are developing ourselves and our village in numerous sustainable directions – withing building, waste, food and vegetable production as well as within the social dimension, which is central to us.
Our commonality in Hallingelille is that we wish to live a sustainable, ecological and organic life. Our bases and concepts are varied, but we thrive in a community where we are open and we endeavour to accept each others' different ways of thinking and being – including a broad approach to spirituality without having any particular collective spiritual direction.
It is possible to live more sustainably – therefore our attempt to do so
We see a sustainable lifestyle as essential for the collective well-being, today and tomorrow. Therefore our attempts to reduce our environmental footprint and improve our life satisfaction by:
- Working with sustainable building methods
- The use of thorough waste sorting and management
- The reuse of wastewater in our willow filtration plant.
- Growing and eating our own vegetables as much as possible
We value our social profile highly, our ways of interacting with each other in every day situations as well as while working and partying, our communication and conflict resolution model, our meetings and communal eating. Everything is a part of the structure of a community that Hallingelille is engaged in. Moreover, we have ongoing aspirations to develop more business in Hallingelille, both communal and individual. This also gives a vibrance.
