Mission statement

We want to become a community of happy and healthy individuals contributing towards a thriving planet by our actions and by our example.

Strategy

  • Develop a social model, where we celebrate life & focus on each others divine core (sacred inner nature)

  • Care for our personal needs first, then for the needs of other people in our community, then for other needs on the planet.

  • Live according to natural law and support our own and each others personal growth through

  • Applying an energetic perspective to the best of our knowledge to daily life, for example through applying the macrobiotic philosophy.

  • Striving for food sustainability

    • 95% or more vegan

    • 80% or more local foods (preferably grown by ourselves)

    • Balanced and nutritionally complete meals for everybody in our community every day

    • Keeping consumption of stimulants in daily life to a bare minimum (sugar, coffee, alcohol, recreational drugs etc neither contribute to connecting with ourselves, each other nor the environment) – The community may decide to include particular ones as part of an event or party.

    • Being aware that we receive lifeforce from sun, breathing and from our environment.

  • Taking responsibility for expressing and fulfilling personal needs, drivers and tensions to the best of our ability, rather than blaming others as the reasons for them not being fulfilled or compensating with food, stimulants, unbalanced activities, inappropriate circumstances etc. Tools we make an effort to use include (but are not limited to)

    • NVC (Compassionate communication)

    • Aima (tools for self reflection)

    • Family constellations

    • Prayer

    • Expressing appreciation

  • We strive to raise our children to think for themselves

    • We encourage their relationships with the world.

  • Use sociocracy as our chosen governing structure, so that all are heard and nobody overrun by majority decisions that go against basic needs and drivers.

  • Care for the planet through

    • Being conscious consumers

    • Choosing organic, local and fairtrade whenever possible.

    • Take up the challenge to transform any waste into a resource for something else (so nothing is wasted)

  • Develop green projects and eco-preneurships which contributes more directly towards a thriving planet.

  • Creating or actively engaging in local and global networks between Eco-enterprises, such as Gen, permaculture, transition and alike.

  • Using a Fair Share model in our businesses to make sure that power and wealth are shared in a fair way between all primary stakeholders such as founders, investors, workers and users (consumers).

    • Goods and services offered are being ethically reviewed

    • Goods and services offered are being ethically produced and distributed social purpose are specified and the social impact audited

      we use a social democratic model for the ownership, governance and management of capital (read more here: http://www.fairshares.coop/brand-principles/)

Personal plans (What each member need to do)

  • Each member needs to make a personal plan based on needs, drivers and intensions. By taking responsibility for our personal needs, drivers and intensions we contribute to the community vision.

  • Members are grouped according to which areas they feel passionate about/resonate with their personal plans, so they together may create synergy in that particular area. For example farming, landscaping, community building …..
