    Here’s an interesting survey. It’s too involved for me to want to fill out, but it could be useful for discovering the ethos of your village. Let me know if anyone has better resources for this

    1. Your Main Why

    Itโ€™s important to identify your main why. What brought you to the idea of making this space? How did you find this path? What was your aha moment?

    Your Story:

    Now, look at your story. From that story, examine why you want to create a regenerative neighborhood.

    2. Mission Statement

    Write a 1-4 sentence statement that summarizes the core of your projectโ€™s mission. Like a compass, this will help guide your core team when making decisions โ€“ preserving the essence of the community over time โ€“ and also communicate outwardly who you are to potential members, investors, collaborators, and visitors.

    There is an abundance of online resources that can help you clarify the exact components of your mission statement and get inspiration, but you want to ask yourself some fundamental questions: What does your project/community do? How does it do it? And why?

    Here are example mission statements from communities:

    Cosmic Sol: โ€œCosmic Solโ€™s ongoing mission is to grow food using regenerative and self-sufficient methods for the good of the planet and for the good of the people. Cosmic Sol is a sanctuary for healing and self-expression using arts, naturopathy, and play.โ€

    Meadowdance Community: โ€œWe are an egalitarian, child-centered community that welcomes human diversity, ecological sensibility, mutual learning, and joy.โ€

    We have a similar process for Hapori. The first step is a step back to observe the big picture, and the values and outcomes desired, before moving into objectives and mission.

    This avoids embracing a shallow mission that isnโ€™t actually aligned with your values and what outcome you seek.

    From the objectives flow the goals and tasks required.

    And the mission provides a succinct energetic focus.

      Ya, i admire the leadership ability of a core duo (or primary partnership/founding-team) of most eco-developments to initially lay the groundwork for getting things ‘done’ (ie. started up), have their employees & management systems, plus have their own sub-system(s) implemented to for ‘residential inclusiveness’.

      But apart from needing money for start-up, this type of community model also still entails sufficient $money for buy-in, though not at the ‘socialite level of expenditures’.

      It still comes across to me like the tried-&-true method of buying a pre-built product – just like from any other Real Estate developer (or I guess, anyone in any other business, community, project – unless the member gets hired & given ‘sweat equity’).

      An interesting ‘mindfk of possibilities’ for me has been when i observe & consider the burgeoning notions of ‘decentralized communities’ (crypto-hype notwithstanding) & how they work together to create products & experiences that the members actually want…

      … while participants (filtered applicants) get to buy-in at a lower price point & WITHOUT things being & becoming a total clusterfk ๐Ÿ˜†

      Eg. https://www.cabin.city/

      Someone had to buy the lands upfront (&/or get it handed to them via donation or partnership) but. O_O*
