Concepts

Based on our Participation Guidelines, we have developed a few habits and concepts that we would like to share, as we think they might be useful for other people and initiatives:

  • To make the tour accessible for people who are cycling with different speeds and paces, have different sleep patterns, and have different levels of experience with navigating, scouts are going ahead to mark the route with arrows, while the tail always stays the last and carries tools and a first-aid kit. Read more…
  • To make hierarchies as flat as possible and give everyone a voice, we make decisions by consensusRead more…
  • For different ecological, social and ethical reasons, all communal food is vegan. Read more…
  • To fight hierarchies, empower people, make sure that work gets distributed fairly and to respect individual needs, we have fixed tasks that are organised using a rota. Read more…
  • To reduce waste, to support big evil supermarket corporations less and to be more accessible for people with little money, we dumpster-dive. Read more…
  • To respect people’s privacy but at the same time be able to keep a memory, we have our own internal encrypted photo-sharing websiteRead more…
  • To develop a culture of non-formal education and to fight hierarchies within our group, we encourage skill-sharingRead more…
  • To be environmentally sustainable, we cook on a rocket stove using wood. Read more…
  • To avoid hierarchies in our group and to empower all participants, we organise decentrally as an open group. Read more…
  • To not share our data with evil corporations and governments, we try to rely on free and open-source softwareRead more…
  • To be environmentally sustainable, we carry all our equipment on trailersRead more…
  • To make sure that everyone has all the information, which is essential for a non-hierarchical group, and that we know about each other’s needs and feelings, we have regular circlesRead more…
