In the past couple of months since building the Happy, simply home with a crew of volunteers (or really built by a crew of volunteers) people have been asking me for some resources and links to the ideas and tangible actions similar to the Happy, simply lifestyle model and education project.
So for those looking for an entry point or a few idea on simplicity / downshifting / sustainability or living life more with less (money, resources and harm on society and the environment) here are a couple of top sources for you…
- The Post Growth Institute – postgrowth.org – alternative economics
- Simplicity Collective – http://simplicitycollective.com/ – academic look at simplicity and it’s ‘worth’
- Make Wealth History – makewealthhistory.org – a great blog of current events and ideas on the ‘best’ things in life…
Then there are also great podcasts and resources from the Moneyless Man – http://www.moneylessmanifesto.org/
This will give you a great intro and beyond the idea of downshifting where it is not just about getting rid of stuff but more about a happier, simpler and richer ways of living!
