In 2013 FoWO was created to act as a democratic organisation for national WWOOF groups to cooperate globally. FoWO’s mission is to unite, promote, protect and support the WWOOF movement around the world. After 10 years of fruitful cooperation between national organisations, the WWOOF movement is now more united than ever before. National organisations have been sharing ideas and resources to promote the founding core values that bond this network, while making sure to preserve the precious local diversities.
There is no better example of this than the Common WWOOF platform. With a unified database and a universal profile accross countries, members of our community will be able to interact with each other internationally. Currently 18 WWOOF organizations are on the Common WWOOF Platform and we expect to have everybody onboard by early 2023!
Today the WWOOF program can be found in 130 countries around the world – and continues to grow! Looking forward, thanks to the passionate people that animate this international cooperative effort, the main goal is to further unify the WWOOF network by supporting a number of projects that are designed to enhance the sense of community and create new ways for WWOOF members to interact.
