Hi 👋, I'm Basile Samel.

✴️ I want to live in a world where we can all wake up every day with hope and purpose. I believe it won't happen unless we come together to learn and tackle difficult problems that go beyond borders and individuals, in a sustainable way.

After graduating from engineering school, I launched my own freelance business and started traveling the world. I did that for 3 years, before joining an eco-community called Catfarm in the South-East of France for a year where I re-learned the importance of living closer to the land and its inhabitants. Today, I want to balance both nomadism and eco-living in a new lifestyle I would call alter-nomadism 💎 by building a network of eco-communities throughout Europe where people can come and go according to the seasons.

As of now, I'm focusing my efforts on growing Catfarm as president of the association, looking for a holistic community model we can replicate elsewhere. On the side, I build web products like websites or SaaS and I do some freelancing as a web developer.
