Please email Eva, Grassroots2Global – [email protected] – to book your place on the session.

Can we bring together a grassroots-led response, the like of which we have never seen, to a threat the like of which we have never faced?

Using a range of practices that enable us to think creatively, and to draw on the deeper knowledge of our bodies, our imaginations, our collective energies and the wisdom of the earth, we will come together to attempt a creative and courageous leap of imagination and faith in our collective ability to wake up and respond in new ways to our shared predicament.

Together we’ll be asking:

“What is needed to parachute our economy off a carbon emissions cliff edge, taking all of us safely down to a high quality / low impact life that prioritises health, water, food and shelter for all, and in ways which respect the earth?”

This isn’t about focusing on reducing carbon emissions but about exploring how – materially, in terms of need-meeting processes – we address the root cause and so end the system driving social and ecological breakdown.

We’re inviting people from diverse communities, including those with lived experience of practices, processes, skills and solutions that are low-impact, low-emissions and high-respect for people and planet. If you would like to join us please contact Eva – [email protected] – to briefly let us know why you’d like to join, and if you’re bringing any skills, hands-on experience, and/ or simply your curiosity/ desire to achieve this transformation. All are welcome – we need a diversity of perspectives and approaches to this fundamental question!

Facilitated by Eva Schonveld, Justin Kenrick, Kate Dyer, Olivia Nathan, Olga Bloemen, Scott Herrett and Dita Vizoso of Grassroots2Global, and Gavin Crichton of Active Inquiry, Andy Smith of ProcessWork and Ed Tyler of bioregioning.

Lunch from Soul Sisters costs £7 a head. We can’t guarantee it unless you can let us know in advance by emailing Eva at the email above. If you can donate something towards your own and maybe others lunches, then great. If you can’t, that’s no problem.
