2nd meeting of a new forum in
promoting eco skillsharing and positive action.
This meeting is to get the ball really rolling with practical projects.
To learn positive low impact skills from organic gardening, low impact building, alt. energy, alt community living, and action skills.
To put people in touch with schemes that need volunteers and vice versa. To help with sustainable projects and communities and for us to start new ones both urban and rural.
To campaign / be involved in campaigns against greenwash, and its unsustainable ?green? consumerist/capitalist disguises. i.e the root causes of climate change and social misery are inherent in the capitalist system and it?s need for market/production growth.
To promote non-hierarchical campaigning and community building through building of genuine skills and skill-sharing. And everybody gets their hands dirty. i.e promotion of DIY culture over voyeuristic / consumerist/capitalist activities.
To connect urban and rural.
To make this available for all i.e. not economically, physically or socially prohibitive.
