Access to the village is granted via a monthly pledge, of which the minimum is £1. This contribution is used to fund projects, and grants you voting rights and an equal voice amongst villagers.
You can increase, decrease, or cancel your contribution at any time.
We use slack - a chat tool - for discussion amongst villagers. These discussions are where ideas are exchanged, opinions are voiced, and concerns are raised.
Projects are our primary method for creating impact in ways that are manageable and measurable. Projects are formed organically through discussion amongst villagers.
Projects eventually turn into programmes, businesses or infrastructure which provide sustained and permanent impact.
