9th August 2017: Every morning, wallflower heart

As in the Héroes del Silencio's song "August", we woke up with a wallflower heart (as this very song says) in spite of, or thanks to, the high temperatures of these days. By the way, beyond the poetic license, we wish you a very happy Summer, wherever you are :)

Refreshing concepts. Matchfunding = crowdfunding + coresponsibility

We never miss the opportunity to share with you something about matchfunding and how this model works, so this time we do it with the support of a Europeana blog article Goteo and the case for match funding . As you know, a lot of institutions are interested in supporting creative projects in culture, research, technology, or science fields. However, sometimes they find it difficult to make their contributions visible, to reach the right sector and audience, or to get communities engaged. Institutions also search for means which help these projects to raise funds, to better manage the administration costs and to ensure a long-term project sustainability. So here the matchfunding programme shows up as a powerful tool able to capture those needs, by achieving the above mentioned goals.

Regarding this, we remind you September will be a hectic month for matchfunding, as the simultaneous launching of the crowdfunding campaigns of selected projects from #FemEducació and #META! 2017 calls take place. Goteo and promoting teams will keep working to optimise success chances for the projects. So these are the key dates:

  • 7th September 2017: launching of campaigns from FemEducació (Fundació Jaume Bofill, area: Catalonia)
  • 14th September 2017: launching of campaigns from META! 2017 (Diputación Foral de Gipuzkoa, area: Gipuzkoa )

Will you support them? We hope so...as well as we hope you will follow us during this sizzling month, as we will keep publishing campaigns for projects encouraging fair and green commerce, or healthy lifestyles, but also standing for forests or other ways of living and buiding.

Hace un año que abrimos las puertas de Café Doctor Luisito&Organicos, un Café de Especialidad y Ecotienda, eso supuso un enorme esfuerzo económico por la gran inversión que requirió. Ahora se nos termina el café que compramos a los agricultores en Etiopía, lo que conlleva reinvertir una cantidad importante de dinero que ya no tenemos. Solos no podemos! Necesitamos un socio, así que si compartes la filosofía de nuestro proyecto donde apoyamos a muchos pequeños productores de aquí...

Categories: Social
Given the recent charges filed against various residents of this village, including accusations that may even lead to jail time, we are trying to find a legal framework that fits our way of living and building. We believe it is necessary for us as well as for other similar initiatives and for families or individuals who are considering this option of lifestyle in the future. We hope to raise financial aid for the legal journey on which we are embarking. Thanks to everyone for your support.
