03 - The failed eco-village story - with Scott Cundill

It is when we have bad experiences when we learn most. When shit hits the fan and we have to go through rough times we grow most out them. Our initial idea at Economadia was how the concept of an eco-village and digital nomads could actually go together. That was back in 2016. A few years down the road and with Covid-19 in our world, this thought does not seem to be that far off anymore. But hold on a minute! Creating whatever intentional community is not a walk in the park. Scott discloses a few very great insights of his attempt to create an eco-village in South Africa – and how it miserably failed because of one thing you might not even think of.
