OSE Europe February Update

Dear OSE Friends,

since January Open Source Ecology is spreading more and more in Europe. In addition to Spain and Germany, Greece and Italy started to self-organize and the Cohabitat Group from Poland is applying already the OSE principles. Here is a short overview of the current activities by country.


We are in the process of creating the open self-organizing network from which project will form in organic way. The website is taking form. Currently Nikolay is connecting with variety of people and organizations in Berlin who are interested in Open Source Ecology.

Creating an OSE Community would be one project from the network and it is relatively open to how it could happen. Possible would be collaboration with other communities or finding a small village or a region willing to engage in open source sustainable development.

OSE(E) will be presented at the KarmaKonsum conference in Frankfurt. (Info by Nikolay Georgiev)


In January some of the people listening to the OSE call for local action decided to start an informational campaign. The first step was made by creating an open blog to archive collected materials. Step two has initiated the translation of brochures and articles for the general population to get informed about the project. Step three, there is some interest to construct something in the island of Crete. There is a forming ecological prototype community showing signs of future experimentation and development of the machines and the tools, yet some priorities have to be finished to move this forward.

There were given 2 lectures about OSE too. One in Athens at a Hackerspace by Diomidis Skalistis and one in Serres at the local Linux Users Group by Nikos Vasileiadis. Things are moving and it is very early. (Info by Nikos Vasileiadis)


The OSE Network expanded rapidly in Italy and we are now planing to create a cooperative and ways to finance the projects. We are also organizing a structure in Marcon (Venice), a farm, to let us start a worksop construction and a worm greenhouse for non hybrid-seeds and plants.

We have possibility to have a meeting with the Arduino’s factory managers in Torino (arduino is the core eletronic system of gvcs) and start a collaboration with them to let them help us design a specific universal Arduino for the OSE needs.

Also we have the big opportunity to participate to the 3rd International Conference on Degrowth in Venice this September. A lot of people from all over the world will meet in Venice and it is an occasion for us to spread OSE in others part of the world. (Info by Jacopo Amistani)


Cohabitat Group is working on the open source buildings – nanoHabitat, macroHabitat (in collaboration with FeF) and root cellar. They are working on a modular system for conducting research in natural buildings allowing to measure Rh and T inside walls and wather conditions outside.

CohabitatHackerspace is a prototypng center for alternative technologies, located in Kwilno near Lodz. The purpose of its existence is to create an open and accessible solutions for the construction of autonomous open-source habitats – a new generation of living spaces in XXI century. Infrastructure located here will allow to build and test machinery, installations, structures … from construction, through biological systems to electronics and democratic social models.

Planned are Arduino Workshops, a two-day International Cohabitat Gathering Festival, open source reed-plant and the traditional strawbale building workshops. A Cohabitat Foundation will be created to cover all the field connected to non-profit activity – open-source projects, education, festival, workshops and research. Planned is a social enterprise for building natural homes and small open source civilizations. (Info by Pawel Sroczynski)


The Open E Land (OEL) community is developing. First six meter dome is assembled and covered in tarpaulins, strawbales will be put inside. Water is found from a nearby spring. Wood burner is to be installed, mezzanine, as well as cooking, working and sleeping space. Planned are also a composting toilet and one or two other structures. There is a generator for electricity on site and hopefully 300 watts of solar arriving soon. Currently there are two people, but after the Dome completion and other comforts more people are expected. OEL is looking for a Permaculture expert to help with the site.

Possibly an OSEE Camp could be organized this year at OEL, where people from different countries could meet, build and learn together. (Info by Daniel Connell)

Jose Bravo is in conversation with the town of Marinaleda for application of the OSE principles.

In summary, OSE Europe is growing and learning and we are encouraging more people and organizations to engage in Open Source Ecology.

  36. 杜兰特对灰熊攻下26分,加上10篮板,带领雷霆拿下三连胜。 美联社西区前八请小心,奥克拉荷马雷霆回来了!雷霆今天在超级双星杜兰特(Kevin Durant)26分、10篮板,卫斯特布鲁克(Russell Westbrook)24分、9篮板、9助攻带动下,105:89轻取曼菲斯灰熊,拿下三连胜。雷霆在西区排名也爬上第九,仅落后第八的太阳半场胜差。雷霆本季因为杜兰特和卫斯特布鲁克开季轮流挂伤,团队战力和组合受到影响,一路在西区后段班苦追。今天击败西区排名第二灰熊后,雷霆以28胜25败战绩,仅仅落后29胜25败的太阳半场胜差,本周雷霆就有可能本季第一次重返西区前八。灰熊在客场作战,投篮命中率不理想,进攻系统也受困,全场只有3成72的投篮命中率,三分球12投2中,命中率仅1成67。大前锋蓝道夫(Zach Randolph)攻下16分、11篮板,15投5中,中锋加索(Marc Gasol)10投2中,8分、5篮板,两大锋线主力整场失常,灰熊在进攻端打得非常辛苦。雷霆在上半场就靠着超级双少联手攻下37分,半场取得66:48大幅领先,灰熊完全挡不住雷霆的攻势。第三节一上来杜兰特就命中三分,雷霆一度把比分拉开到领先22分,早早搞定比赛。杜兰特说,「我们一开赛就打出侵略性和自己的节奏,这是我们的比赛计画,灰熊是一支防守很强悍又有韧性的球队,因此打出好的开局,延续这股侵略性非常重要。」
