our vision

AKASHA, the community of support, will build 2’000 bedrooms in 25 locations. Our living homes will be built in the most amazing location on this beautiful planet. We will support our five key pillars: family and youth, healing, business, art & expression, and nature & sustainability.

OUR INTENTION

The world we live in has sadly turned human lives into an asset for a system that is making us lonely, stressed, unhealthy, unhappy….

 

● Our homes, became a commodity of speculation

● Our jobs, turning into a need for survival

 

Our communities will become the university for personal and collective growth. We believe communities have the power to be self-sufficient. Through a lifestyle of support and collaboration with others, we can enhance our natural life purpose: feeling joy, healing, growing and thriving. AKASHA is creating an open source blockchain of trust, that will empower aligned communities to collectively build sustainable spaces by…

 

● Supporting members’ participation and time exchange

● Sharing revenue to support a collective fund / pool

● Re-investing in projects within the community

● Decentralizing governance

● Decreasing the cost of living, trading and sharing resources

● Finally provide our citizens the “universal basic living” instead of a basic income

 

In order for this to happen, we first need to know who “we” are. An essential step in building collectively owned organizations is defining and strengthening the common bond – the unifying factor that binds people together. The first step on this journey is to simply connect with the people around us and continue the discussion on our ideas and intentions.

Family and youth

Having meaningful experiences with and for your family is essential. Connecting with other like-minded families and reconnecting with our inner child is part of a big liberation from existing society structures. Families shall yet again become the place for trust, inspiration and joy. Including the young generation in our communities is very essential. We want to be inclusive for any age categories as everyone benefits from a broad spectrum and different life situations and experiences.

Healing

In order to heal ourselves and others we need to create supportive environments. Homes where we can be in our true nature and create a harmony within ourselves and with nature and others.

Business

We believe that ecological and economical sustainable communities are essential for the growth and prosperity of our members and AKASHA as a whole ecosystem. We encourage our members to be active in society and the business world, rather than disconnecting or even fighting existing systems. One main intention of AKASHA is that we are able to provide a “universal basic living” to our members – so they can focus on their passion and what they love, rather to focus on money or a job they don’t like.

Art & expression

Our lives and society structures became very “stiff”. The homes were living in are not supporting our inner longing for “craziness, art and expression”. It is crucial to liberate our potential and creativeness through: dance, art, music, expression and celebration. Just as we use to be as kids, AKASHA will be – if you want - the playground of your fantasy.

Sustainability

Living in harmony with and in nature is essential. AKASHA communities will be fully sustainable and as much self-sufficient as possible. For that we have experts in the field of architecture, sustainability, permacultures and technology. Sustainability is our focus also when it comes to financial freedom of our members and price value compared with other co-living or co-working concepts.

What we do

WE ARE ON A MISSION

Build a platform that will enable co-creation and collective governance. Our living homes are built with the latest technology and sustainable standards. AI & blockchain will enable unique experiences and connections on the next level. Becoming a prime innovation and incubation network will create further value for all our members and stakeholders.

Ownership

Our members co-own and co-create our communities. In mid-term we will be financial independent and community funded.

Growth

Collective and individual growth is crucial among our members. Together we create inspiration for our members and include also a broader network of like-minded people. We will become a role model for other communities.

Sustainability

The basic principle of our homes of support is it to be sustainable on all aspects: economical, ecological and cultural (the values and alignment of the citizen in our communities). We walk the talk, that is why we are investing lots of effort in the details of how our hardware and software will look like. Sustainability is the essence in creating the harmony within ourselves and among the others.

Innovation

Becoming an innovation hub as well as a key player for role models and best practices for sustainable communities is our aim. Innovation is needed to solve many of our today’s problems. Living and working on common goals and innovation project will scale and move ideas faster. Collaboration and exchange in the technology field is very important. Our communities will become clusters of innovation in all different fields.

Incubation

Along with innovation and collaboration we become a major incubation place for sustainable and community driven projects. For that we collaborate with external stakeholders: investors, universities, public and private sector. As our locations are globally spread we can also make usage of different trends and bring people for

community of the future

We are the community of the future striving to change the status quo to:

Our communities – not ordinary, like our members

Our communities of support are owned & driven by the community like a timeshare did in the past. The major part of your monthly payment is saving or amortization. This makes us also financially the most attractive co-living project on this planet.
