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 plan to: 

  • Train Gift-Ambassadors to bring gift-economy into their communities. Their role is to coordinate volunteers and gifts from this network in their communities and to connect to each other.
  • Continue the development of the platform: The Routeplanner (Organizes the transport of volunteers and ressources between communities)
  • offer support for communities and pioneers to create accounts so people can find out about each other's offers and needs
  • strengthen the collaboration with existing networks, like GEN,, Project Nuevo Mundo and caravans like Comun-Tierra
  • grow the network by helping the organization of community-tours in south-america and communities convergences.
  • host a hackathon for programmers as a first step towards making an open-source community
  • share the gift of giving in different events and workshops

Please support us to continue our work!

Happy giving!
