We hope employment in the village will be possible. The location is excellent for tourist-related businesses such as artisan products, holistic treatments, courses, food-processing, book café, cultural and social centre, and offices and hostel to be located in our “eko-torg,” the former barn. We expect that residents who are not self-employed will have location-independent jobs or seek employment in Visby. Until the ecovillage is built, the old farmhouse serves as a collective for the first 8 to 10 pioneers.
We are at this time seeking contact with others who could help make Suderbyn a vital community with its own unique cultural identity and social cooperation. From the start, we see Suderbyn as part of the global intentional community movement and wish to attract a broad spectrum of people from Sweden and abroad to join us.
