Where are we now?

Skælskør folkehøjskole i sine bedre dage

In April 2018, we chose to create our project in the old Peoples College in Skælskør, because

  • The place won our hearts
  • The nature & the beach
  • The quiet location at the end of a dead end street
  • 6,000 sqm buildings for homes, common areas, businesses and activities.
  • The neighbouring plot is ideal for building our blue-green peoples college.
  • The buildings have soul and are worthy of preservation.
  • Skælskør’s citizens have proved to be committed, open-minded and supportive.
  • Symbolism: The same kind of energy and effort is needed to heal the man-made destruction on the rest of the globe.

Currently we and many local citizens and organizations, who has objected to the present plans of the municipality are eagerly waiting for the municipality to decide to support us. In case that happens

  • The old buildings will become an eco-village (a cooperative housing project with a large common area and premises for rent  for ecopreneurships and green projects), which will be build in 4 phases over a period of 2-4 years.
  • We will start seeking funding for the economically independent Peoples College, which will be build on the adjacent property.
  • We will create an establishment company which will function as an overall structure holder of how our missions will be executed and organized.
  • Our core-group will continue to expand and stabilize through regular meetings, online and physical, training in sociocracy and other skills we need. We already now have enough committed people to fill up Phase 1, although some of them prefer living areas in the later phases.

Sustainability in all areas

In regards to Self

We aim to live our passion and respect our needs and resources. NVC, Aima, Family constellations, dragon dreaming, daily meditation, healthy meals, being physically active and other tools supports us in living from our hearts, reconnecting with our selves, communicating clearer, clarifying direction, dealing with emotions etc

In regards to relationships

We aim to contribute from a place of surplus, rather than from a place of obligation. We believe it is an innate quality in people to want to contribute, once their own basic needs are taken care of. We percieve lack of contribution to the community as a sign that basic needs aren’t being met. It may seem like a paradox to build community through reconnecting with our selves, but we believe it is the only real way to prevent and resolve conflicts.

In regards to society

Through our example and our educational activities, we seek to inspire the world around us to take the next steps towards a sustainable life. We aim to create or participate in local, fair & sustainable businesses, so we may make our living by doing what we love to do, while we contribute to the society around us.

In regards to the Earth

We aim to eat 95% vegan, grow our own foods, buy locally, consume with awareness, build sustainable, be as much off-grid as possible in regards to utilities, so that we may leave a better earth for the next generations to come.

Sociocratic Decision making

Dynamic self-governance / sociocracy is our decision making model, since it provides full  transparency and allows us to to have an equal voice at the same time as we only need to participate in meetings regarding subjects that we engage in.

You may learn more by reading Many Voices One Song or by participating in SOLT (Sociocratic Leadership Training).

Shared Meals

Our community kitchen will provide two high quality  nutritiously complete meals a day, made from unrefined, local, and organic ingredients, which is primarily plant based. A daily meal program strengthens the feeling of community, puts all of us on the same wave length and secures us all a solid biological foundation for life.

The bulk of the food consists of whole grains, beans, seeds & local vegetables, complemented with fruits, nuts, and optional smaller amounts of animal foods. A basic diet like this activates the body’s self-healing powers and is kind to the earth.

An employed chef will lead the kitchen and we will all assist in cooking and/or other tasks that needs to be taken care of.
