EcoVillage.Design is building a PlatformCoop for organizations and freelancers who supply the goods and services to make an ecovillage possible.
A platform cooperative, or platform co-op, is a cooperatively-owned, democratically-governed business that uses a protocol, website or mobile app to facilitate the sale of goods and services. Platform cooperatives are an alternative to venture capital funded platforms insofar as they are owned and governed by those who depend on them most—workers, users, and other relevant stakeholders.
