Our Vision, mission and aims

We have co-created and adopted these 'Objects' as the bedrock of our organisation, to guide our thinking and the development of our Tiny House projects.  The contents were discussed and developed through a collaborate process open to all of our members and we reached agreement by consent. The content of the document will be reviewed periodically.

VISION:

We dream of a world where it is true that people dwell and thrive in inclusive and nourishing communities integrated into and participating in the wider living systems of the planet. 

MISSION:

To create regenerative places where people and nature coexist and evolve together to provide solutions to the housing, ecological and climate crises.

AIMS/'OBJECTS'

Land and Homes

  • Acquiring and managing a portfolio of sites within the West of England, removing them from the speculative market and protecting them for common good land uses; in particular for the creation of culturally and ecologically regenerative tiny house settlements that lift up those in housing need and steward the land. 

  • Acting as enablers and developers of: 

    • low-impact, nature-first, truly and permanently affordable homes for rental, shared ownership or owner occupation

    • integrated shared resources (e.g renewable energy, food, workspace, meeting space) with reference to co-housing principles

  • Collaborating with landowners and local businesses to source materials, labour and other resources from our bioregion 

 

Community

  • Enabling the creation of diverse, inclusive, thriving communities that adhere to THCB principles using dynamic governance and power sharing structures at all scales across the organisation.

  • Keeping our collective visioning dynamic, in order to build our adaptive capacity and respond to the emerging future.

 

Learning and livelihoods

  • Providing opportunities for learning, skills and knowledge building and sharing which will enable members to pursue regenerative, purposeful and rewarding livelihoods.

  • Enabling direct involvement of residents, prospective residents and other members in the design and construction of homes and communal spaces.

  • Integrating reflective practice and ongoing evaluation into the work of the organisation to support our own and others’ learning. 

  • Committing to ongoing collective inquiry into the cultural and personal dimensions of, and solutions to, issues of inclusion and diversity. 

 

Value

  • Increasing the social, ecological and economic value of the sites we manage or own to create collective sufficiency and generate benefits that will feed into other THCB projects.
