Urban Exodus

Moving with the Times by Pacific Domes

The urban exodus may have started as a temporary fix, driven by people’s response to living in times of extremes the recent pandemic, along with concerns around personal safety, the high cost of living and general decline in the quality of city life. That said, moving with the times has, in many ways shifted perspectives for the better. Urban dwellers are seriously reconsidering where they choose to live, work and raise their families.  

The urban exodus has grown into a back-to-the-land-movement as people discover that there’s a safer, simpler and happier life within reach. According to conservative polls as many as one-third of people living in densely populated areas are cutting cords with city life in search of a more self-reliant and sustainable lifestyle by moving off-grid.

The Urban Exodus – Whose Moving?

Then, this blog might spark a desire to hasten that move. Don’t be surprised to find that friends will want to visit you just to get away for a rewilding weekend!

Urban Exodus Grows Work from Home – Work from Dome

The ability to telecommute  and work from home has quickened the mass exodus and created an urban shuffle across the country. Thanks to better broadband connectivity and communication technologies, like Zoom, people are learning that they don’t need to be nested in cities to get their office work done.

Cities have become hostile to mom and pop businesses and many entrepreneurs are learning that they can recalibrate a way forward by moving to smaller communities that welcome their services. Businesses, like our friends at Tiny Life Consulting, are thriving in the wake of the urban exodus.

Urban Exodus Grows a Nomadic Lifestyle

The urban exodus has quietly transitioned into new opportunities for remote work to go mainstream. Digital nomads are fast becoming accepted as the new normies.
