Refresh the Climate & Rewrite the Future Action Workshop Berlin (24.08-02.09) Call for participants

SCI Germany and SCI International invite activists to join in this 10 day action workshop where we’ll discover ways of organizing communities in a sustainable way and will change the way we talk about climate change and solutions! Climate change is an anxiety-provoking subject which is difficult to tackle in the media and gives us a sense of powerlessness despite the fact that solutions exist.Study themes: De-growth and transition town movements, strong sustainability, alternative ways of living, cross-cutting issue ideology (capitalism)/environmental, urban gardening, perma-culture, renewable energy, inner transition, local food system and cooking.

All participants, after taking part in the re:actions, are invited and encouraged to come back home and run their small community based projects (local actions) or implement sustainable interventions. Those who will provide follow-up information, will have a chance to get an accreditation to COP21 climate negotiations this December in Paris, where we hope a binding and ambitious agreement will be signed.
