Your gifts keep us giving! 

We are a dedicated team working for the vision of a gift economy network that connects people and sustainable communities - A network that connects needs with available gifts, facilitating the exchange of knowledge, services and resources.
ecobasa started in 2011. In 2014 we relaunched the platform and co-organized many Community-Tours and Communities-Convergences since then, all based on gift-economy.
Our goal for the next year is to become self-sustainable and for this step we need your support!
In 2016 we: 

  • trained Gift-Ambassadors to bring gift-economy into communities. Their role is to update the community profiles, hosting gift-circles in the community, to connect to each other and to coordinate gifts from other communities in this network.
  • continued the development of the platform: Now there is a newsstream from communities, community-tours and the ecobasa network and a personal wishlist for every member of ecobasa.org
  • received the exceptional start-green award for our new perspectives in our gift-economy business plan :)
  • offered support for communities and pioneers to create accounts so they can find out about each other's offers and needs
  • strengthened the collaboration with existing networks, like GEN, ic.org, NuMundo and existing Community-Tours
  • grew the network by helping the organization of community-tours in south-america and communities convergences.
  • shared the gift of giving in different events and workshops. Book us now!
