via original post (anonymous author) on Diaspora:
    /"It seems like the whole nomadic inventor movement is taking off. For a long time now, creative people without profit motives haven't had the easiest time getting their ideas out there. That's all changing though. Here are a few places where a person could go, camp, meet like minds, and develop their ideas, all in open source, extremely low cost to money free environments. The camps have specific projects that they hope will benefit humanity and are also open to new open source projects and ideas. If any of you are or know someone creative that wants to learn to thrive off grid and make the world a better place by doing so, please share this post with them. :)"/

General on *bases

        hackbases are live-in hackerspaces, like residencies for hackers and people interested in technology (but also other things!)
        "A nomad base is a shared living space where all inhabitants can feel like hosts or in other words: 'at home'."
    * :
        "A nomadbase is a communal living space, whose main purpose is to give long-term travellers the opportunity to have a place they can call home for free and without long-term obligations, where they come to (and leave) whenever and as often as they want. It is a place where they are not guests, but flatmates, no matter how long they stay."

    * "This hackbase is an infrastructure project designing and deploying a free living habitat."
    * "Hackbases are live-in hackerspaces, the critically missing infrastructure to enable full-time vanguard technologist lifestyles. [...] hackers are subsumed by the life logic of current advanced capitalist societies [...] hackers with normal day jobs are powering a bullshit neoliberal political reality, which is destroying the pillars of dignified public life [...] These problems are as insufficiently addressed, and structurally cannot be solved by big corporate, startup, non-governmental or academic organisations, as well as by current hackerspaces."

    PAF ("Performing Arts Forum") [St Erme, France]
PAF is based in St Erme, 150km north-east of Paris, France, between Reims and Laon. PAF (=PerformingArtsForum) is a place for the professional and not-yet professional practitioners and activists in the field of performing arts, visual art, literature, music, new media and internet, theory and cultural production, and scientists who seek to research and determine their own conditions of work. PAF is for people who can motorize their own artistic production and knowledge production not only responding to the opportunities given by the institutional market. Initiated and run by artists, theoreticians and practitioners themselves, PAF is a user-created, user-innovative informal institution. Neither a production-house and venue, nor a research-center, it is a platform for everyone who wants to expand possibilities and interests in his/her own working practice.

The place is located in rural Japan, about two hours east of Tokyo on the Boso peninsula.  It’s a cluster of buildings, a lot of shared tools, and a beautiful country setting. The people are a collection of Japanese and foreign tech hackers who’ve escaped from city life. We’re working together on projects, making life richer for ourselves and for the community who have adopted us."

    Factor e Farm / Open Source Ecology [Missouri, USA]
A hackbase by OSE people, for working on that project.
"Factor e Farm is a 30 acre parcel of land 1 hour away from the Kansas City International Airport in Missouri. In 2004, Open Source Ecology purchased this land - a blank slate that was a soybean field. Since then, we have been busy building infrastructure, using as much open source, libre processes and hardware as possible. [...] Factor e Farm is an experiment on many levels: natural ecology, industrial production, experimental research and development, immersion education, and a transformative lifestyle. Factor e Farm combines a lifestyle immersion in the world of open source hardware, and a goal of creating the open source economy. We are experimenting with what it would look like if a small group of people were able to achieve a full resilient lifestyle, by tapping solar power (direct and indirect) and appropriate industrial technology - to master infrastructure maintenance at no more than a few hours per year - to attain raw industrial productivity with appropriate, heirloom and modern technology - to ascertain production of food, housing, energy, and technology from local feedstocks. This implies significant technology, productivity and efficiency levels - essentially removing waste from the unstable model of centralized industrial production, and converting to a more congruent and ethical open source economy."

    Sailing the Farm [Norway + sailboat]
They just built a boat.
"Interested in self-sufficiency? Want to help build a community? Love the sea? Our collective, on an organic farm a few hours north of Oslo, is for anyone who wants to learn and work hard. We grow food, boats and ideas, so if you have a knowledge or interest in permaculture, farming, boat building, or sailing, come and help us create a home that is sustainable both on land AND out at sea!"

    Kuckucksmühle ("KuM") [100km NW of Berlin/DE]

    Marinaleda [Andalusia, Spain]
    * "Today, Marinaleda is a place where the farms and the processing plants are collectively owned and provide work for everyone who wants it. A mortgage is €15 per month, sport is played in a stadium emblazoned with a huge mural of Che Guevara, and there are monthly 'Red Sundays' when everyone works together to clean up the neighbourhood. Leading this revolution is the village mayor, Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo, who in 2012 became a household name in Spain after heading raids on local supermarkets to feed the Andalusian unemployed."
    * "Marinaleda is a small and remote village of Andalusia, one of the poorest regions in Spain. The town, with a population of 2,700 citizens, has a unique political and economic system of a strong socialist nature. As a result Marinaleda has virtually full employment in Andalusia, a region where the unemployment rate is more than 36%.  The wage is equal for all workers, they earn 47 euro a day for six and a half hours of work.

    Can Masdeu [near Barcelona, Spain]
"The valley of Can Masdeu is a network of projects that resists, at the rhythm of the seasons, the voracity of a city without limits. It is a creative act of disobedience to the world of money, smoke, noise and speed. A proposal for collective cooperation and coexistence between generations, at the foot of Collserola and with roots in Nou Barris.
The valley comprises 35 hectares of land classified as ‘equipamientos’, part of the Collserola Natural Park and is owned by the Hospital de Sant Pau. However, from the point of view of use, the active custodianship of this suburban territory is exercised by the collectives that have reclaimed this as an agricultural and social space since 2001. This network mobilizes hundreds of people, all linked to one of the five projects of the valley, and remains viscerally convinced that the land belongs to the those that work it."

    Kanthaus [Wurzen - near Leipzig, Germany]
"[...] The project house and housing project Kanthaus, located at Kantstraße 20 and 22 in Wurzen, exists since Summer 2017. Conscious and effective use of resources is the topic we chose for ourselves and foodsharing is what brought us all together. The faces you encounter at Kanthaus can vary because we are part of a big network of ecological and social people from Germany and beyond. Normally there are around 10 people present at Kanthaus; when we hold events it can be way more but it's seldomly less. [...]"

    Kraftwerk1 [Zurich, Switzerland]
Kraftwerk1 is a cooperative and grassroots housing and workspace project with three settlements located in and around Zurich. It started as an experiment in the real estate crisis of the 1990s, departing from the vision of a worldwide movement of appropriation of former industrial areas, toward shaping “a new civilisation beyond work.” Kraftwerk1 became a collective, self-organized, environmentally and economically sustainable urban alternative, within a mix of residential, social and commercial spaces. [...] Through the process of development and (daily) living, Kraftwerk1 contributes to the renaissance of the traditional cooperative movement in Zurich. Its members developed environmental standards, operational concepts, and collaborative activities in dialogue among themselves and the elected cooperative bodies

it's a biig scene.. my unscientific impression is that it's rather more pervasive here than in Europe. 
Much of the US is "off-grid," for practical and sometimes cultural/political reasons. Going out to the colonies or the frontier was and is a sort of going off-grid, after all, all along. 
For sources, comes to mind, Mother Earth News, Home Power Magazine, many other off-grid / homestead / survivalist / "prepper" magazines and sites. 
Whole Earth Catalog was a very influential publication in this space 1968-72 and occasionally after; and various offshoots of it continue to influence, like its 'Shelter' section head Lloyd Kahn's offshoot Shelter Publishing, still going strong, based in Bolinas just N. of San Francisco. Maker movement and Maker Faire organization has strong lineage to that and Bay Area / NorCal scene.

The Clearing is a vision of the future in the grounds of Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park
The Clearing is a vision of the future in the grounds of Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park. We’re building a living, breathing encampment, in the shadow of the former stately home, where people can come together to learn how to live in the world that’s coming our way. From March to December 2017, The Clearing will become part school, part shelter and part folly.
For more information on global temperatures, food scarcity, migration, water scarcity, soil degradation and peak everything, please click the links.
cool worksops:

"Loural Village is a small eco village in central Portugal which is being restored. Permaculture and workshops, meditations and healing, inhaling the natural beauty, eating home produce and feeling renewed. Live life as it is meant to be, care for the earth, in community with others. // We want to receive permanent inhabitants, locals, travelers, hikers, and anyone that wants to enjoy the nature and the peacefulness of the site for some days or weeks. Loural will be an open village, also and definitely not in the least for local people, to enjoy a coffee and pay a visit on a free day."
