SDG8 Decent work and economic growth

Ecodorp Boekel would like to be a platform in which enterprising/initiative members are given the opportunity to realize their passion/life mission and develop their talents.

Doing business yourself
Companies that produce sustainably can be set up by ecovillagers. They take the risks themselves, do the work and receive the associated profits. PIP is such an example.

Doing business together
There is a very practical reason for starting up eco-village businesses together, namely to reduce the rent. The rent and membership fee for the association is based on the costs the association has, such as interest and repayments to the bank. That amount can be reduced if there is more income from the companies. The better the companies function, the lower the rent/contribution.

Do you want Ad Vlems to explain more about his experience of this SDG and how to implement this SDG yourself in your own project or community?
