other similar projects – inspiration
Hey Dave, all,
don’t know if you knew about these couple of projects, but they are very aligned with your intentions for project Kamp so check them out and you might find some inspiration / work already done

I would actually like to do a road trip (europe) this summer to visit some communities to research how they work, set up their infrastructure en how they manage socially. Want to capture this information in videos to share with the rest of the world, as I believe they already gained so much knowledge but often not very good in documenting it… So very curious to other communities.. This one is already on my list: https://www.tamera.org/
I was also going to suggest Tamera – but I see you’ve already discovered it 😉
As someone who has had a long-time interest in the theory of Stirling cycle machines, I was aware of Jürgen Kleinwächter’s large, slow speed, Low Delta-T, Beta-type designs – which were developed and tested at Tamera. It looks looks like an interesting community.
4 days : 28 june / 1 july. I’ll be there this year to meet new projects and workshops 🙂 Inscriptions are opened.
Ive been following Kalu Yala for some years,
”Building the world’s most sustainable town by engaging shareholders and homeowners in the creation and governance of a destination with a purpose and using the momentum from our actions to lead to a greater good for the people and environment in our region”
”Currently accessible only by two miles of rough dirt road, our valley is located 50 minutes from downtown Panama City and 35 minutes from the international airport. On this tropical frontier, a settlement is being established with plans to grow into a thriving town”
They are pretty good in reporting their progress and they have their own website:
Check-out the map of European Eco-Villages for your roadtrip.
I just got back from a very inspiring trip to Findhorn in Scotland.
