Idea pitch

We need inspiration! POSSIBILITIES that suit a low oil, a more connected and satisfying lifestyle. Imagine. A dubbledecker bus, touring round ecovillages in Europe to capture best practices and important learning points in the fields of governance, social relations, finance, food security and other practices increasing resilience. It's necessary for future living.
A skilled crew will document and screen these 'modern day tribe living' possibilities on internet, city squares and theathers.

Where will your idea take place?

The bus will visit a nr of ecovillages in EU. With the opportunity for new ppl to join and connect!

Why does Europe need your idea?

In the mini societies called ecovillages, a lot of different decissions need to be made. Not easy with up to 200 people in a meeting. Different techniques are being used to make sure everyone can be heard and objections are not personal but common. 'Sociocracy' and 'Forum' are such tools.

What is your impact?

More people all over Europe would know about a different way of living. Closer to nature, each other, and ourselves. Appropriate technology and design leading us away from oil, towards a resilient future together. Also villages will learn from each other's best practices troughout Europe.

How do you get there?

1. Finding a skilled film&editing crew.
2. Arrange sponsored biofuel bus to travel in.
3. Promote project to find paying participants to join the tour and experience ecovillage living for themselves.
4. Contact ecovillages in EU countries, visit, experience, shoot film footage edit on the road.
5. Show the ongoing and expanding docufilm in different cities we pass during our tour. Also short teasers about every ecovillage will be put online to increase our reach.
6. Grant finale in Berlin.

What is your story?

We believe the route humanity is on is a very destructive one. Destroying our only home. We feel disonnected and disempowered. Replacing screentime by working together to sustain ourselves and our neighbours WITH nature, not against, connects us on a soul level. Healing ourselves and the collective.

Who are you doing it for?

We are doing this trying to create CHANGE. We have seen enough problems, now we need SOLUTIONS abd INSPIRATION everyone who resonates is the target group. Young and old, everyone can be, and needs to be, part of the solution. And they will feel the call.

What do you need from the Advocate Europe community?

what kind of inspriation to increase resilience would you like to receive?
