Prince Charles To Build Massive Eco-Village In India

Hell, who knew that Prince Charles was such an epically awesome badass? The dude is building an eco-friendly model village for 15,000 poor people in India that will include schools, shops, and 3,000 homes!

Allegedly inspired to improve the situation for India after seeing Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, the multi-million-dollar venture will be placed on a 25-acre wasteland on the outskirts of either Kolkata or Bangalore.

The village, if you can believe this, is modeled after Poundbury in Dorset county and developments are set to begin in the fall. Features of the town will include large roofs with overhanging palm trees to collect rainwater to use for showering and in toilets, shade and natural ventilation systems to combat the high temperatures, and instead of open sewage the village will host rubbish heaps and shared sanitation blocks.

“When you enter what looks from the outside like an immense mound of plastic and rubbish, you immediately come upon an intricate network of streets with miniature shops, houses and workshops, each one made out of any material that comes to hand,” Charles said of the project.

The Prince of Wales has been to India many times, and most recently paid a visit with his wife Camilla Parker Bowles during the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. He’s also always been an active environmentalist; earlier this year debuting his eco-documentary Harmony, and previously developing a 4,000 home eco-village in the UK.
