It’s our purpose to help the neighborhood we are located in. That means we have to work for the community and its needs…
Our Coliving is located in an area with social and economic problems, plus we should work in the transition to a sustainable way of living.
We are worried about our young generations. What can we do for them as a local company and as a coliving? In the last few months, we have started a relationship with a nearby Public High School in La Isleta.
Remote workers giving in Gran Canaria
Many remote workers are very conscious about the communities they visit. Living in a place for 3 or more months pushes them to give back some of their knowledge, skills, and experience.
There are web pages like Nomadsgivingback.com, where many remote workers organize events and engage with local communities around the world. We are talking about cultural exchange but also a positive impact.
How we do it
We are trying to connect this remote work revolution with the public educational system, we do it with groups of 5 remote workers, talking for 5 minutes to the students, and after they answer questions about what they do, how they do it, and how all this new flexibility at work can affect their future.
It’s also a moment of inspiration for the students. They can see how very young remote workers of 28 years old, already work for themselves, without any kind of boss, and have clients all over the world.
Everything is in English, which makes the activity more difficult for them, but also more challenging, students have to ask in English as well.
For Teachers and students, It´s an important experience, because this is all happening very fast, and they understand this is affecting their future.
For the Colivers is also a deep experience and a moment to understand our reality, something they are not going to forget easily…
Remote workers giving in Gran Canaria is a new way of discovering any local community, learning more about the local community, and turning travel into an extraordinary experience.
