Dome Communities: Safe Havens for Digital Nomads

“The best way to predict the future is to design it.”Buckminster Fuller

Millennials and digital nomads have been excited by the prospect of remote employment since internet access opened up a whole new world of global travel opportunities. While others are just coming around to the concept of remote work in a post-pandemic future, the self-organizing community of digital nomads has been quietly gaining momentum and drawing like-minded people together to form collaborative safe havens worldwide. These communities are outfitted with everything one might need to live the life they love based on shared interests, values and goals.

Done right, co-working basecamps are a great option for travel to some of the most breathtaking and exotic places on the planet. If this prospect excites you, then we invite you to follow along as we explore the futuristic world of dome communities.

Surround Yourself with Like-minded Digital Nomads

We, humans, are hard-wired to live in community and the digital nomad culture, is no exception. Why are communities so important? Being part of a thriving community is essential to living a well-rounded life. Connecting with your tribe imparts a sense of belonging and provides a social environment to strengthen your mind, body and spirit.

Traveling the world alone need not be a lone wolf experience. That said, how do you find the right co-working community for you – a safe-haven where you can enjoy fellowship with supportive, like-minded people to help you make the best of your digital nomad lifestyle?  

A good place to begin is by exploring the internet for platforms where one can connect with other like-minded digital nomads in just about any region or country of the world. You’d be surprised at how many online digital nomad communities and meetup groups have sprouted up to facilitate like-minded individuals in finding their ideal co-working basecamp and tribe.

Why not seize the moment!

It’s easy to see why, when you join a digital nomad community, you can gain a network of people that support and love their independence as much as you do. But, what if you can’t find a co-working community that suits your needs or lifestyle?  

Don’t let that stop you… Did you know that, due in large part to extended Covid-restrictions over the past couple of years, the outdoor and hospitality glamping biz industries are booming? Could this be the perfect motivation to spark new horizons and rally that innovative, entrepreneurial spirit? Why not consider creating your very own co-working basecamp – this could be the best investment decision you’ve ever made!

  • Explore why a Co-op or Private Membership Association (PMA) might provide the ideal framework for your freedom-loving co-working community:

Explore why a Cooperative might be right for you… Once you’ve gathered your tribe, it’s time to start the conversation around creating the experience, right? But, what is a co-op or a cooperative? The short answer is that a cooperative is a collectively owned enterprise that serves the interests of its members.

Cooperative business models are often easier to implement with very little upfront capital investment because members are contributing their physical or freelance labor. This translates to a business that’s owned by its clients, workers or both. In addition to profit sharing, co-working member-owners are given a voice in business decisions. This is where defining your legal structure early on will prove invaluable.

Explore why a Private Membership Association might be right for you… A PMA is created by and exists upon the contract authority and power that people have reserved for themselves. Co-working PMA members are free to exchange any services or information whatsoever on any topic they choose. The long and short of it is, that PMA members can speak or write about, listen to, or read any information, use or obtain any information, product, or service on any terms agreeable to any member who chooses to provide that information, product, or service within the private membership association. It might be worth mentioning, that a PMA does not need any authority or permission, of any kind whatsoever, from any government for its creation or in order for it to continue to exist and function.
