The Mont Royal Summer Camp in Traben-Trarback (South-West Germany) has been organized annually since 2007. The 8th edition will take place from 10 September 2014 till 15 September.
Every year about 250 young people, families and older members join up to make this camp unique.

Please note that most of the time you will only be able to read the discussion but not participate actively unless directly asked to. You can already check out the agenda, which will still be worked on till next week.
Are you looking for a cool way to spend the first week(s) of August? Why not join hundreds of other travelers who will be hitchhiking to Albania to join the 2014 Hitchgathering!
Want to leave now already? No problem, there are numerous pre-gathering on the road to Albania. Just check the official 2014 Hitchgathering website.
Since there is no fixed agenda, it is up to YOU to make it happen!
So stick out your thumb, bring a tent, your guitar and some stories, and tell us all about it later in our Hitchhiker's Group.

Member Simontour has submitted his Master's thesis at the Uppsala University (Sweden) on the subject of Hospitality Exchange Networks. In particular he highlights the struggle between Commodification and Commons.
If you are interested in the way different networks approach the idea of "sharing", you will probably enjoy reading Simon Schöpf's 124-page analysis. A direct download can be found at http://bit.ly/Sevu5K
The thesis is published under a Creative Commons share-a-like license so feel free to pass it on if you deem it appropriate. I'm sure Simon would appreciate constructive feedback, so don't hesitate to contact him.
