Case Study

The initiative aims at offering sustainable eco-tourism accommodation for young nomads from all over the world.  Their guests can experience life in a remote Romanian mountain village close to unspoiled nature. To complete the experience, the guests’ food is locally produced by the nearby villagers, sustaining the micro-local producers. The guest’s accommodation can take place either in newly built huts (like the Muma Hut - Mies Award nominee), or in old, refurbished traditional houses. A team of innovators in sustainable architecture, naturalists, and locals has been working together on the first urban-rural collaboration campus in nature. As they started by connecting under the same umbrella accommodations, serving meals provided in collaboration with locals, and experiences in the wild, the WeWilder Campus was a necessary focalisation for all those activities, as a place of departing in explorations, and a spot to reconvene.

The focus is both on sustaining the local economy by bringing outside visitors in the area and offering an alternative for remote workers to connect back with nature and have a more fulfilling live-work balance. The aim of the new individual cabins with huge windows is for people to reconnect with themselves, nature, and their work.

The WeWork initiative’s founders aim to transform the place in Romania’s first rural hub, embedding deep green economy principles. By creating demand for local products, and services, from cheese, to apples, and local hospitality, they want to inspire the community further to get involved in green businesses. Thus the WeWilder campus is a model.  Once validated, the team intends to learn, refine, and multiply it in other regional priority conservation areas. - https://www.wewilder.com/campus

The full package of experiences offered by the campus so far consists of discovering the bison in their natural habitat either by walking or through e-bikes tours, bear spotting, and outdoor sleeping, brunches, and fine dining with local products, and team buildings

Key Take-Aways
