Abstract (english): Entrepreneurship is a part of economy which is demanded in modern open economies. Structural changes in the society are needed for creation of entrepreneurship. The current situation shows a clash between the economic and the ecological system in global scale which will result in grave ecological catastrophes for the future. In this article, feasibility of shifting with a structural change in order to redefine links between economy, ecology and society through sustainability will be investigated. The goal of this study is to synthesize this interaction especially in development process for reallocation of resources towards a new concept of green social entrepreneur's communities. Based on the fact that humus rich soil is the key production factor for water, food and hundreds of industrial products, entrepreneurs can form communities of between 50 up to around 200 part time poly-productive micro-farms. Cost and energy efficient housing is a starting point for added value, incomes from highly intensive organic farming can cover parts of the income, small scale production another. With a suitable size that makes such a new town development attractive there will be a demand for childcare, schooling, health and old age care offering additional incomes. Such communities will and must improve soil quality and biodiversity, creating a positive footprint.
