WARNING: May contain opinions
This group is where we share ideas, report on existing sustainability projects and provide practical and technical solutions.
The idea is that we can create several transferable sustainability models to roll out in our towns and cities and eventually reduce our communities reliance on the monetary system.
The big plan
Lets persuade people in our communities to take part, get them to switch to credit unions, set up their own time /skills banks, teach them how to generate their own electricity, install alternatives to Gas central heating, like ground source heating. Show them how to harvest rainwater, grow their own produce, improve and maintain their own properties. All without relying on the current system. They can then turn their skills and produce into commodities to trade or share with other communities taking part.
Have a look around you, could you persuade your community? Are there any neighbourhoods that are really suffering that could do with a leg up?
Is there waste ground or abandoned buildings near where you live?
See one do one teach one
When the first projects are complete you would then have a new community who can teach the next one how to do it and so on eventually developing a network.
If this is done properly, with a lot will, determination and man power it could snowball throughout the towns and cities.
Gaining the trust of the general Public is key to our success as well as our clear intention and commitment. If we are giving communities something back that they will be able to use for years to come, this can only be a step in the right direction. It would also bring communities closer together and re instil confidence in the people within them.
If you have any experience with this type of project or you have something you could contribute, please join in.
