Villages

Create cinematic presentations, share them with a link, and collaborate with others in real time.

The bHive Villages platform is coming soon! Villages connects groups of neighbours together to build community, run events, communicate with each other and share stuff and skills.  Villages is real sharing. It’s gifting, not consumption. You can share tools, furniture, veggies, fruit, your time and skills and meals. 

Villages aims to create an epidemic of belonging. It is a digital tool that brings us face to face. This is important because our modern society is socially isolated and lonely, which is having a huge impact on our health and wellbeing. The early 2000s research of Professor Lisa Berkman showed that having strong connections in our local community is better for our health than giving up smoking, alcohol and fat and adds ten years to lifespan. Relationships built over the side fence and up the street can last a lifetime.  We need to be together. 

To create your Village you become a member and an owner of bHive Cooperative.  You have the same ownership share as every other member. With bHive, there will be no advertising, no selling of data and no bots. 

Over the last 18 months bHive Directors have been involved in numerous international and local conversations with developers and platform co-operative specialists to source a reliable and flexible software solution that will support bHive Villages.

Villages is a foundational element of the bHive that once in place can be built upon. Future applications that will plug into Villages will include cooperative sharing enterprises like car sharing, stuff sharing, skills sharing, power sharing and more.
