We are creating a community hostel in London where people who are passionate about positive social change, environmental sustainability and inner work can connect and inspire each other. By creating a meeting place for the many people who pass through London, we hope to strengthen networks for positive change and alternative communities.
The hostel will offer:
- Shared communal meals around a long table each evening, where people can meet other people with shared values.
- A diverse range of workshops (many peer-led by guests), enabling people from different places to inspire each other with stories about the work they do, and build networks together.
We are a non-profit social enterprise, and will reinvest surplus to offer subsidised accommodation to volunteers and campaigners, when they visit to London.
Eco Soul Hostel will serve as a model of more sustainable urban living. A significant part of its educational impact will be in offering people a direct experience of living a low-impact lifestyle for 24 hours. For example, the hostel will aim to be low-carbon, near zero-waste and will source from ethical suppliers.
However, in addition to this, the community hostel is designed to be an accessible place where people can taste living in a community for the first time. We hope that people who have booked will be inspired by hearing others share about some of the alternative communities and networks that exist across the region.
