We are in the process of developing a local and municipal plan that fits our project.
Meanwhile we have permission to start Avnø højskole with focus on health and a health sanctuary. (The present local plan allows for a health center.)
Some of us have moved here to take care of the property and get the project of the ground.
Attract like-minded co-creators.
Finish developing the local plan. Adjust the project as the work with the local plan moves ahead.
Create well-functioning working groups.
Make sure Vitalitetsfonden has the liquidity to keep afloat until Avnø Oasis AB and Avnø højskole can buy the property.
Apply for state approval of Avnø højskole
When the local plan is ready (expected summer 2022).
Our home will be in the 3 upper floors of the main building
Ownership of the property. Once the local plan is ready the property will be owned by our Cooperative housing association Avnø Oasis AB.
Meals. Our community kitchen provides 2-3 high quality nutritiously complete meals a day.
Facilities: Lower floor in main building is shared between Peoples College, Enterprises and Co-housing community: It contains kitchen, dining room, laundry, gym, front hall, auditorium, guest rooms, studio, billardroom, workshop, etc.
Tasks. With such a large common area, shared food and so much
activity, expect to use around 2 hours/day + 1 day/month on shared tasks.
Community cars (coming). We all need a car sometimes, but it doesn’t make sense that each of us have a car when we are mostly working from home. At the moment the policy is that we pay DKK 2,50 to the owner of the car for private use.
For residents only. The 3 upper floors in the main building, which contains 29 bedrooms with private bathrooms & several shared living rooms, kitchenettes, linen rooms and offices.
Your room(s). Each grown-up may have at least one bedroom. Once the local plan is in place, you are free to invest in upgrading your private space to accommodate your needs within limits of building regulations, for example combining rooms to apartments …
Snacks and special foods, not provided by the kitchen.
Economy. Your money is yours.
Enterprises. May be privately owned, co-created by subgroups or community owned.
→ Latest research: Households in Danish eco-villages have 30-50% lower carbon footprint than the average Danish household. Members of eco-villages (average carbon footprint of 8.4 tonnes) have a slightly higher life satisfaction, compared to the most consuming quarter of Danes (average CO2 footprint of 22.6 tonnes).
Principle: Costs for the common area are shared between all adults. Cost for the private area are distributed according to size of private area. Kids are only paying for food.
The cost of your cooperative share is composed of a unit-share for your private area and a community-share for each adult in your family.
If you move, your community share is sold back to the community and your unit share is sold to the next resident(s). A fair value of your unit share will be determined based on improvements / deterioration.
Payment for a share is 20% of the full value. It is possible to pay full value and have reduced monthly costs. Providing the liquidity of Avnø Oasis AB allows it is also possible to pay less and have your monthly fees adjusted accordingly.
