The goal of this page is to make a list of all sorts of possible models of Nomadic Co-living. This list wants to be as inclusive as possible, hence it includes many different projects alltogether.

Definition

  • A nomadbase would be a place where multiple nomads can live at the same time.
  • A nomadplace would be a place where there is just room for one or maximum two nomads.

Free Lands

  • Land in some countries is free to access. You can be as free as you want and wonder around, eat fruits and veggies when you find them. This is the greatest and biggest nomadbase on the planet.

Privately owned Land

  • In some countries people own their own piece of land that they have openened up to share to nomads, travers

Landtrust

Same as above but owned by a foundation.

Households

Households can be single households or multiple person household. These households can be shared with nomads.

  • Rooms available for nomads. Long term, short term (one week?).
  • Every house would have their own rules
  • Some houses are free of charge or other houses might ask you for contribution.

Flatshare

  • That has a certain turn-over rate can be a turnover rate. If people can come for a month, a couple of week (a period compatible with nomadic lifestyle). In this situation it is also possible that nomads pay the normal rent as anyone else.
    • Advantages: There is already a 'commons' there. You don't have to start new, there is a bed, internet, etc.
    • It can even be more a nomadbase if these people are willing to host.

Communities

  • Larger communities that accept nomads at their community to work and live. Different rules apply to different communities.

Farms

  • Farms are one of the best known nomadbases. There is two existing networks Wwoof and Growfood.org. People come to volunteer and can stay at the farm in exchange of bread and a bed.

Helpex

Retreats

Squats

  • Squats can be opened for nomads. In some countries this already is common practice. Some squats are very open, others are not at all.

Temporary

  • Rainbow-gatherings for example. These happenings are open for anyone to join and you can stay as long as it is there. Rainbow-junkies for example tend to jump from one gathering to another.
