Eudea is a wikitown that aspires to help form an open source appropriate technology ecovillage: a technecovillage.

They explain:

‘A testing ground for biomimetic design and fabrication, unified by pursuits of social and biological benefit, developing decentralization, automation and accessibility.

Educational, innovational and land-tending cooperatives can generate vital solutions and inspirations in this time of profound emergence and emergency.

Wiki-ville, maker-stead, hacker-habitat, tinker-town, and technology-oriented ecovillage, Eudea will be a living laboratory for developing and prototyping affordable, accessible and replicable solutions to the challenges of food and energy production, economic and educational models, material scarcities, environmental accord, adapting to rapidly changing technologies and social landscapes, nurturing health and enhancing wellness.

Eudea may ultimately have multiple hubs or sub-villages representing various areas of interest such as mechanics, software, health, biotech, arts, events, ecology and agriculture.

Revenue may be generated by offering education, conferences, healing and wellness services, events, products, incubation and acceleration for appropriate technologies and other health, wealth and happiness-generating start-ups and ventures. Donations and grants will also be accepted from those seeking to support the development of affordable and replicable tools for resilience and abundance.

The ways forward are ever more apparent. Rapidly advancing networked information and communication technologies are clarifying that open, free, collaborative and DIY principles are increasingly required to succeed, flourish and remove friction in the areas of science, technology, manufacturing, media, arts, education, politics and markets.

If any of the above mentioned topics is something you care deeply about, sign up for an account and contribute to this wiki by adding or correcting content, or asking questions and brainstorming ideas under the ‘discussion’ tabs.

Perhaps this wiki can serve as a planning and organizing tool for an actual development.’
