A more harmonious and equal way of life has been on my agenda for a long time. I have come across various ideas through the years such as the Venus project through Zeitgeist, and other off grid small scale communities. I would like my own personal freedom, and it would be absolutely amazing to resolve poverty on a global scale. But let's start small shall we.. The thing that always stood out the most to me with Ubuntu was the '3 hours a week' idea. Who in their right mind could argue against 3 hours a week for all their basic needs. I intend to spend a similar amount of time if possible, looking at the ideas shared on this website and this organisation. I have several ideas based around tiny homes that at some point in my life, I would do, also based around ubuntu principles, but on a much smaller scale. For example, a tiny house village that contribute 3 hours a week to food growing opportunities around the site, which is then shared with the residents. Otherwise, I am open to see what is discussed and suggested on the website in the coming days with an open mind. Things will take time to change, and I have a realistic expectation of this. But as long as we continue to take small achievable steps along the way, we will get there!
