A nomad base is a shared living space where all inhabitants can feel like hosts or in other words: 'at home'. It is a place where the inhabitants - how temporary they may stay - feel at home, do their 'thing' and can learn and share at the same time with the other people who live there. A shared culture of participation in common activities (household and events for example) as well as mutual care among inhabitants and visitors are highly necessary for these spaces to remain sustainable.

The values of sustainability, sharing and openness are central. A nomad base does not exist for the sake of financial profit.

A nomad base can be a shared living space (like a house, an eco-village or intentional community) rented, owned or squatted by one or more individuals who decide to also share this space with nomads. It could also be a temporary space on a temporary location like some piece of (squatted) land. Each location might have their own specific culture, aspiration, focus, terms of living, minimum or maximum length of stay, intentions, and so on.

Characteristics

What are characteristics that 'define' a nomadbase? What does a place needs to have to be labelled as such?

  • Open for nomads
  • Shared living?

The limits of nomad bases

See the discussion page for ongoing brainstorming

Manifesto

Work is being done on a manifest that can be publicized in various cities through hospitality exchange networks and forums, inspiring and inviting other "houses" to join a nomad-base network or inspire other individuals that are already using their houses as nomad bases to connect with each other.

The intention of this manifesto is not to set any specific rules or definitions of what a nomad base should be, but describe certain potential properties/tendencies/intentions of nomadic bases, the kind of dynamics likely to develop in such bases, etc.

Nomadbase Network

A Nomadbase-network would be a network of nomads and nomadbases: a network of nomads, long term travelers, skillsurfers, etc, with places and bases that are open for shared living. See also Nomadbase-Network and Models_of_Nomadic_Networks.

Nomadbases could also stay in touch with each other, exchange on ideas, processes and experiences.
