We are supporting people to create or join small groups (pods) of 3 to 8 people who develop real, ongoing relationships with each other, practice mutual aid together, and/or engage in a shared project. We believe that honest, healthy relationships lead to the highest possible levels of resiliency and wellbeing for communities and their members. We call this way of being together “regenerative relating.”
Rather than a rapid response to crisis, mutual aid—with genuine relational connectedness at its foundation—can become a sustainable and joyful way of life.
Pods provide a way to enact this potential.
We are providing tools, resources, and direct support for people to join or start a pod or bring an existing group into our network. You’ll find descriptions and links to submission forms for each of these options below.
For an outline of the benefits of joining the Pod Project network—especially if you already have a small group or pod—check out The Benefits of Being Part of the Pod Project.
We aim to foster a culture of belonging that creates the conditions for holistic wellbeing and a strong capacity to act to solve the problems of our time.
Interested in joining a pod? Check out our Pod Directory or share your information with us so we can match you.
Have an idea for a pod? We offer a guide, tools, and support to anyone looking to get started.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
