Part of a week-long series of events called Grow Change! to discuss the idea of self-organising action and its role in society.
Capitalism continues to grow bigger and stronger every day seemingly ignorant in the face of limits to growth and refusing to acknowledge resource depletion or real sustainability. Living in the belly of the beast we know this story too well! However, we are big believers in changing that narrative.
So what are we going to do about it?
Well, that's why we have organised a series of free events, which is part of a week-long series called Grow Change! This series is just the start, and we hope that over the rest of the year and beyond we can build on this action collectively...
This Friday-night afternoon-into-evening event has a focus on action against climate change. Join us at Grow in Hackney Wick so we can get together for:
- 5-7pm : Print making workshop
- 6-7pm : Sharing ideas and plans on how to self-organise in our own community (and beyond) to take action against climate change
- 8pm 1am: Extinction Rebellion Social
Extinction Rebellion aims to promote a fundamental change of our political and economic system to one which maximises well-being and minimises harm.
Other themes across the week at Grow Change! includes ethical economics; gentrification + community resilience; skill sharing economy; and education outside of academia.
