By interviewing 32 out of 92 local residents, this research shows environmental sustainability level of the social, economic and natural resources dimensions, raises questions regarding the ecovilage sustainability, suggests improving indicators to grasp social and economic sustainability of the community environment, at the same time that recognizes on it innovative solutions that can be reproduced for the sake of a better social environment.
