Today there are more reasons to move than ever before due to climate change, disaster prone geography, economic uncertainty and people quitting their jobs to adapt to relocation during the quickening environmental revolution driven in part by record breaking, deadly, super storms and economic opportunities.
“Workers coming out of this pandemic recession are confident enough in the economy’s prospects that they’re willing to take a risk and leave their job behind,” Marketplace’s senior economics contributor Chris Farrell told host David Brancaccio in an interview. | July 8, 2012
The Agricultural Revolution began about 10,000 years ago and the Industrial Revolution little more than 200 years ago.
These two previous revolutions brought changes quite unforseen - or unimaginable - to those who lived through it through their dawn. Those people who, around 100,000 years ago, began to domesticate some animals and plants, could not know that their decendents would as a result, abandon a nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle, and stay in one place - a totally new concept that began to alter the face of the planet.
The advent of the Industrial Revolution changed everything again - machines,raleways, factories, even capitalism were born. In each evolution human thought was also profoundly changed.
In what new ways will our thinking and our world appear after the full flowering of the Environmental Revolution? The prospect of change is daunting, but the promise - of living in accord with our planet Gaia - is too compelling for us to remain unmoved.2 Ed. Norman Myers. Gaia: An Atlas of Planet Management. Paperback – 1993, p261.
Tips on Relocation
- Healthy persons of sound mind and body are most likely to be fit enough to live on their own given opportunity to produce goods and or services in the 21st century.
- Homesteading in the 21st century can also be very lucrative on 2 hectares (~5 acres) depending on location, natural resources and markets.
- Once a general location between suburban and rural is located, a minimum plot of 2.1 hectares of land and water is recommended to ecologically sustain 1 human.
- When friends, partners, neighbours or extended families become part of the mix, scaling becomes a group activity that can stimulate some economic basis for growth independently and together.
- When planning a move storage space helps organize clutter or, if you have items you want to keep but don’t have room in your home, storage becomes essential. However, instead of renting, consider buying a shipping container. It can be turned into a tiny home guest house, used for storage, a pantry, or workshop.
