One of the oldest grassroots movements, the Ecovillages, are already more than 130, some older than 50 years old, such as Findhorn ecovillage. The permaculture projects listed at Permaculture Association UK already add to more than 230 land based projects. One of the most youngest movements, the Transition Towns Network, saw a rapid increase of Transition initiatives being one of the networks with more initiatives in Europe, counting already more than 630 local communities.
