Ideas on what we might be able to do together as groups within the community and how to achieve them once we 've a hub up and running.

Jacob Jay🎩

One of my principles for hubs is simply for members to collaborate and form groups that achieve things together—without imposing. 🤝

A fab example is food and I'd love to see a cooking club in which participants collectively prepare meals, maybe taking turns or simply all working together. There could even be multiple competing clubs with different tastes, approaches and timings. There could be a contribution for those not participating, ensuring inclusion without feeling like being a canteen, eventually I think everyone would participate as it could be fun and rewarding even if you hate cooking!

Similarly there could be a gang interested in growing food. Though agriculture and livestock need continuous looking after, and the skills aren't quite so easily learned as cooking, our volunteers however stay longer than most other members, and might be persuaded to participate too.

These have tangible (tasty!) results but many of us seek less tangible ones too. Likely groups will yoga, accountability sessions, maybe even a morning rave (à la Morning Gloryville)! How about skill shares? That'd actually be useful! 😇

These things don't need to be part of some 'official' agenda, it'll just take several members with the same intentions coming together to make it happen. The resident guide ('community manager') and volunteers would nonetheless facilitate to link everyone up. 👍

#94 Union de Coopératives du Cognac Too bad about the cancelled visit! The town looks lovely. About the lack of interesting activities in the area, I agree. It would be preferable if we had that. What would be the next best candidate, in this case?

Hi there! I am Isadora from Italy living in Portugal. I am leaving all the doors open to my options. I would love to be part of a project here in Portugal but somewhere closet to the beach.

I am also working on a smaller project in Tuscany together with a friend of cohousing, sustainable tourism and local development. In specific, we are planning to buy old beautiful historical buildings and renovate them to create small communities of people who want to cohouse and manage sustainable tourism projects and local projects.

We are in the process of building a website, so, more info coming up soon!

Hello! We are in Japan - and have leased a beautiful, Showa period large house. We are considering now possible live -work inclusions. Since we primarily use this house for cycling excursions in the region. Japan has many dis‑used properties but they are difficult to access without being Japanese (mainly language, process, etc). I'm interested, possibly , to pursuing more of these with some co‑living support.

If anyone wants to see what they are like -- here's our cycling house up in Gunma which is just 2hr from central Tokyo. g.page/astuto‑cc‑kiryu?share

Welcome any feedback, ideas, collab, etc.
