In January 2017 we heard about Vinge, a new town planned by Frederiksund municipality in Denmark, who welcomed eco-villages. We connected with another aspiring eco-village Cirkelbo, who plan to open a heart centered holistic school, Vinge lilleskole, in the area by 2018. With local train the distance to central Copenhagen will be 37 minutes.
Later we met the founder of Bærebo, a larger sustainable settlement project in the area, planning to provide structure (buildings, off the grid electricity, land to grow vegetables etc) for 3-400 houses or more. If our remaining questions are satisfied and we can gather 18-26 likeminded households for a neighborhood and Bærebo’s negotiations with the municipality follows schedule, we will be able to move in september 2018. Meanwhile members of OASIS are invited to start up small in Kristiane and Johns large house in Jystrup.
