The Green futures group are currently embarking on a project to map community eco groups green shops, green spaces and other local resources.
The Watch and Wonder discussions are on hold until after the September 2020 Rebellion but there are some links to interesting resources below.
We are at last recognising that we cannot continue as before, but that leaves us very much with the question of the lifestyle we see ourselves pursuing as an alternative. Assuming our species takes the measures necessary to avert its own extinction, where do we want to sit along the spectrum ranging from complete “back to nature” (whatever that might mean) to “dominance over Nature” (our recent ambition until recently)?
Accommodating change is about how we envisage social infrastructure in the future. How will it enable us to survive sustainably in the long-term, and how can we design our communities so that we can give recognition to our part in and of Nature?
“Accommodating Change Part 1” asks us to think more deeply about how to redesign our community infrastructures so that they answer the two major questions, “How can we avert the final catastrophe?” and “What do we need to include in our ideal community?”, as well as any other considerations we think important to us and whether or not they’d be workable. Some hope can be found in studies in Biomimicry.
