“We are travellers, revellers, storytellers, foodies, barflies, lovers of nights out, nature and fun… and we don’t see why we can’t be all these things while saving the planet too.” The GOtilo team
Hey! We are GOtilo – the online community for socially conscious urbanites.
All over the world, there are hundreds of thousands of people like us, creating restaurants, cafes, clubs, pubs, chill out spots, stores, brands and more that not only offer an experience worthy of a fun crowd but also that make a difference.
We’re talking gourmet restaurants that serve incredible meals sourced right from your doorstep… and change people’s lives in the process.
We’re talking about shared spaces – from undiscovered gig venues to permaculture clubs – that give young and old, you, me and everyone we know, a voice.
We’re talking about celebrities, vegans, yogis, fashionistas, designers, rappers creating movements that bring people together to change our communities, cities and our planet for the better.
How awesome is that we live in an age when a critical mass of us care so much about the places in which we live? We at GOtilo continue to explore and be astonished by what our peers show us. From eco- parfumiers to ethical waterparks, the more you explore the movement, the more you push the boundaries of human ingenuity and love, the more amazing the possibilities become.
We know this world better than most and we’re about using our knowledge and experience, combined with the sharing power of technology to share them with you. Don’t keep them to yourself: pass them on.
Citizens, punters, organisers, businesses: GOTiLo NEEDS YOU!
GOtilo is a community of ethical explorers (we actually invented the term) that is growing all the time and connecting with a unique audience of switched on, purpose-driven millennials.
We thrive on your tips for the lovely organisations that mean something to you and do something for your community at the same time. Our only criteria are that, in the experience they offer and the people for whom they care, they are truly special. Know of one? Are you one? Then please, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A (Very) Brief History of GOtilo
GOtilo was inaugurated by multi-award-winning author, social affairs journalist, activist and social entrepreneur Asheem Singh (twit: @robinasheem) and charity and social enterprise business director, entrepreneur and community builder Adam Glass (twit: @adsglass) with an aim to build the ultimate shareable resource for the socially conscious urbanite. We were frustrated by the continued failure of mainstream entertainment resources to understand the ‘social enterprise’ space and found existing ‘ethical’ or ‘sustainable’ magazine, review or directory sites to be either generally underwhelming in terms of their accessibility and usefulness or simply providing a platform to phony ethical businesses more interested in posing with celebrities than actually making massive social impacts. So we decided to sort this mess out. We began in our home town of London in 2017, but we have ambitious growth plans and hope to bring GOtilo to your city very soon.
What does GOtilo mean? We’d like to think with a little effort you can find out, but if you don’t know yet be patient and stay involved. Someone in our community will eventually let you in on it…
