Permaculture </strong>is a way to develop systems with respect and consideration for the interconnection that exists with other systems, <a href="http://permacultureprinciples.com/" target="_blank">more informations</a>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> I will share these actions to change the world and the informations to try to inplement them through articles, photos and videos on the <a href="http://www.sharebybike.com/news/">news</a> page as well as social networks. You can share topics that are important to you or ask questions about the project. Join us on social networks or subscribe to our newsletter on the website <a href="http://www.sharebybike.com/" target="_blank">http://www.sharebybike.com/</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> Videoconferences and educational work will be carried out with schools in order to involve young people of all ages in these societal changes and this incredible experience (contact me by <a href="mailto:hello@sharebybike.com">email</a> if you want to create an exchange).</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Kkbb1_-1442833069" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/233644/KKBB1_-1442833069.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Kkbb-1442497517" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/232537/KKBB-1442497517.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Hy, I’m Florian, 27 years old, I was born in Belgium and consider myself a <a href="http://www.wikihow.com/Be-a-World-Citizen" target="_blank">world citizen</a>. Already volunteer in my spare time, I wish to cooperate in an other way to build a better world and share with you this exceptional human experience... Find out more about me on my profile or site.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Kkbb2_-1442833084" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/233645/KKBB2_-1442833084.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> I will travel on an expedition bike (example). These bikes are strong and, with some small adaptations, I will be self-sufficient in electricity for my electronic devices (<a href="http://www.next-way.fr/2015/03/test-e-werk.html">info</a>). I will have almost everything necessary for complete autonomy: tent, sleeping bag, water filter, tools, spare parts, …; only food, and parts in case of problems, will be purchased (<a href="http://www.lebraquetdelaliberte.com/guide-voyage-velo">info</a>). But in order to share more with local people, I will use networks such as <a href="http://campinmygarden.com/">campinmygarden</a>, <a href="https://www.couchsurfing.com/">couchsurfing</a>, <a href="https://www.housecarers.com/">housecarers</a>, <a href="https://www.warmshowers.org/">warmshowers</a>, etc.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The route will be chosen according to <a href="https://www.transitionnetwork.org/" target="_blank">the transition network</a> and community work networks such as <a href="http://www.helpx.net/" target="_blank">Xhelp</a>,<a href="http://www.workaway.info/" target="_blank">Workaway</a>, <a href="http://www.wwoof.net/" target="_blank">Woofing</a>, etc. The organizations can be contacted directly. I will work particularly in the field of energy, environment, communication, agriculture, education, …</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Carte-itineraire-1440489116" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/226164/Carte-itineraire-1440489116.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Kkbb3_-1442833092" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/233646/KKBB3_-1442833092.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> An instinctive desire to live more freely and rather than individually. Working on society changes while discovering the beauty of the world in all its natural and human richness. Having the desire to share this adventure and the indisputable fact that we all have a responsibility to take action at our own level. Finally, working against the dogma of infinite growth, misconceptions, misinformation, looking for comfort and consumption without considering everything we are a part of, nature and humankind.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Travelling by bike because, in my opinion, it is the best compromise among all means of transport possible. Faster than walking and, unlike motorized transport, it allows you to live your journey, use your senses and perceive your environment. For more information on this topic, I urge you to discover the principles of <a href="http://www.consoglobe.com/le-slow-travel-pour-voyager-autrement-cg">Slow travel</a>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><em>« Too fast means of transport are alienating and illusory » [Ivan Illich]</em></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> This project originates from the fact that we are in an unstable society, completely dependent on fossil fuels. Many of us feel helpless in this fragile model responsible for so much injustice and social and environmental disasters. Still, many alternatives exist and thousands of people working on this.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Particularly through the development of the Internet, a new society of knowledge and sharing has been born!</p> <p>  </p> <p> As said by Pablo Servigne in his <a href="http://nourrirleurope.eklablog.com/">book</a> and <a href="https://vimeo.com/98943164">conference</a> : Either we anticipate and act now or we wait to be facing bigger problems. The first step to take, the most important one, is to change ourselves…</p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>« <strong>Be the change you wish to see in the world</strong> » <strong>[Gandhi]</strong></em></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> Here are the estimated project costs for two years, showing quality material needs and services required for the project.</p> <p> <img alt="Cost-1442500104" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/232565/cost-1442500104.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> My participation is 7000€, so it remains 6090€ to be funded.</p> <p> I start this crowdfunding campaign with 2500€.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Calls for material and financial sponsorship are also made to professionals working as responsibly (ethics) as possible, if you can help me at this level, contact me.</p> <p>  </p> <p> If I can't raise the 6090€ needed to be able to make community work as much as wished and to share a maximum with you, I will work when it is needed or borrow, Share by bike will start anyway.</p> <p>  </p> <p> If your generosity exceeds the needs, the extra will be used to finance social and human projects.
