To support the work described by the founder in the following TED Talk, you can join the True Fans.
Become a True Fan
True Fans donate a given amount each month to support OSE's ongoing projects to crowd fund our continuing work. We are currently supported 100% by foundations and donations to develop the Global Village Construction Set. Becoming a True Fan is a way to support the development financially, and you can support the project through design contributions in weekly Design Sprints. The The True Fans subscription is a repeating monthly donation to Open Source Ecology, for a duration of 2 years.
- As of January 2013, we have about 400 True Fanships.
- Meet some of our True Fans and read about why they chose to join the campaign.
- Read on our weblog about the 1000 True Fans - 1000 Global Villages campaign

We are developing tools to help you! We are building the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS). The GVCS is an open technological platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small civilization with modern comforts. Our goal is to create the Open Source Economy, with the GVCS as the first step.
We are making real things, not just ideas. See our progress on the OSE blog. Any donation, big or small, can help. We are proud to say that we follow agile, lead development practice - and 98% of our donations go directly to project development. Thank you!
