We are looking for projects and events to visit in summer 2018 in southern France, northern Spain and Portugal
Ecotopia Biketour is a self-organized political bicycle tour that has been cycling through different parts of Europe each summer since 1990. The tour visits different projects and groups which share our group values: ecological sustainability, anti-oppression, veganism, skill-sharing, multi-linguality and consensus-based decision making. It is one of our core values to create a non-discriminatory environment. For example we have stayed at alternative social centers, cooperative farms, bike kitchens, anti-discrimination groups, self-sustainable communities, action-camps and environmental campaigns.
A diverse, international group of around 20 to 40 people cycle with the biketour each day. Our group usually sleep in our tents and are happy to use outdoor spaces. We need access to water and electricity whilst visiting projects which we can give a small donation for. We cook meals every day (with our own cooking equipment) which we are always happy to share with our hosts. We offer to help in the projects we visit by doing some work in return. Because we’re a mixed group of people, we have a wide range of skills and activities that we are happy to share with you.
We have started planning the 2018 biketour and are looking for two types of projects to visit during July, August and September in southern France, northern Spain and Portugal. One type of project that can host us for 3 or more days and a second type of project that we can rest at for one day. Whilst we are visiting projects we are interested in learning about them, helping out, sharing activities together and resting.
If you know of any projects or events that you think would fit our needs and could potentially host 20-40 people from the biketour in summer 2018 please let us know. To propose a project for the biketour to stay at pleasesend us an email at 2018 at ecotopiabiketour dot net
