BOB is an off-grid of independent local producers all connected but each one small enough to feel himself responsible for its actions and its community.

“If you are not free to decide how to produce your resources, you cannot even be free to decide how these resources should be used.“
We believe that building an international off-grid of local producers is a key point: People who act locally, produce locally, use local resources and talk to a local customer base, but also people who think globally, have an international view of global processes, and exchange with their pairs in other Countries.
The good-neighbourly activity should not be seen as a localism (“support your locals”) but is a network of territorial relationships, having greater control over the nodes of the system (because it is small) you have more control over the effects of the system. The idea is not to exclude on a territorial basis, but to include.
We are an informal international network of organisations willing to change the society through different models and in different fields of action. We are bubbles, we bring our knowledge and experiences into this Bubble, we all aim at bringing equality and social justice in our societies through private actions having an impact on sustainability.
