Notes: I wasn’t quite right on this word
The word ecotopia means “an ecologically ideal place”
This word came into English in the 1970s
Background / Comments
This word came from the title of a novel by Ernest Callenbach – Ecotopia. In the book, this word is used to describe the west coast of the USA. The word itself is a blend of eco- (environmental; ecological) and utopia (an ideal place) – thus, an ideal environmental place. Incidentally, Utopia is the title of a book published in 1516 by Thomas More. As I noted yesterday, once you know the words it comes from, it’s simple to get the meaning.
