Going Local Going Green - Workshop
Friday 14th October 11am-4pm
Cobalt Studios, 10 – 16 Boyd Street, Ouseburn, NE2 1AP
In the face of the hype, branding, and ‘green’ capitalism, this workshop explores “what does it really means to go local and green?” It draws from the relationships between food, nature, economy, health, and land rights, and how to shift to local, mutual, and dynamic relationships that counter global, imperial, and mechanistic domination. Come along to explore down-to-earth changes we can take and learn from.
This event includes lunch.
