“ThePOOSH.org is the unique hospitality site for virtually anyone, anywhere in the world wishing to participate in or start their own sustainable self-build project.”
ThePOOSH.org links people. There are two types of membership available, POOSHers (volunteers) and build project hosts, who can communicate via thePOOSH.org internal messaging system.
ThePOOSH.org operates without borders. ThePOOSH.org has created a global database of sustainable self-build projects and volunteers. The intention is to encourage its members to share more sustainable ways of building and living.
ThePOOSH.org is an exchange. In return for volunteer help, self-build project hosts are encouraged to offer food, accommodation and opportunities to share sustainable self-build techniques.
Do you wish to help sustainable build projects by volunteering your time, knowledge and energy?
Dreaming of building your own sustainable structure is one thing, but gaining the experience to actually do it is everything! Being a volunteer member with thePOOSH.org creates opportunities to develop theoretic knowledge and practical skills associated with sustainable self-building and to network with other like-minded people.
Volunteering is a rewarding process and the benefits go beyond food and accommodation. Communication, teamwork, cultural understanding, community awareness and confidence are just a few examples of skill development areas that you will have the opportunity to gain by becoming a volunteer member.”
