Being encouraged (or forced) to work from home has been an adjustment for many of us. The freedom to work in sweatpants without the commute is nice at times, but even the views from a makeshift home office can become dull. Luckily, several countries are currently welcoming remote workers, including the Portuguese region of Madeira. This island has introduced a new Digital Nomad Madeira project.
Digital Nomads Madeira is a project that can currently host 100 digital nomads in the town of Ponta do Sol, where 8,200 people currently live. The first phase of the project has already started — it will last from February 1 and will last until June 30, 2021. Everyone who wants to come here must commit to staying in the town for at least a month.
The individuals who travel there to work remotely will have a free workplace with a desk and chair, access to the Slack community, and free internet. In addition, activities for digital nomads will be organized (networking, yoga, seminars, workshops, and hiking), as well as other events that will facilitate contact between them and the local community.
The project aims to help the local community, both economically and socially. If the project is successful, the plans are to implement the second initiative in Madeira and launch a similar project in several rural areas of Portugal.
