Presentation of the Organization

Presentation of the Organization


We are a group of young people from all around the world, with a will to build and live an alternative life.

What are we doing?

We create sustainable environments, especially ecovillages and alternative communities.


We want to bring sustainability to the daily life of people! We will start building 3 communities in the next 3 years. We want to develop our network and improve our project of sustainability, to bring to everyone sustainability as a reality.


The NGO Hands&Leaves has members in every continent and is active worldwide. At the beginning, the NGO will exist officially in Germany, located at the City Hall of Osnabrück, Lower Saxony. The projects of three “Communities Hands&Leaves” will take place in Germany, Romania and Tanzania.


A first meeting will happen in Osnabrück, Germany during the month of May. The Executive Board will be chosen by at least the half of the majority of the Assembly plus one. The members which are not present can nevertheless send their votes by email, phone or mail to Paul-Vincent Hubert.
Another meeting will occur within 6 months after the first General Assembly (GA).

How much?

We start with a core of 7 Executive Members and moreover around 30 Active Members will provide the starting budget.
We start our Organization with a budget of 600, 00 €, which is the amount of money got from the membership fees. Subscribing to the authorities as an existing NGO in Germany costs around 70, 00 €. The rest of the money will go the first year to buy products for the first meetings needed to launch the Organization.
