We’d like to (re)introduce you to one of our other projects:
This is the mission statement from the Alternative Estuary blog which (hopefully) explains what we’re trying to achieve with this project:
It’s easy to know what you’re against in a dysfunctional, unsustainable and increasingly dystopian world. Railing against the world we have to endure may make you feel better but…does it lead to positive change? We know that the political, economic and social system we inhabit is rapidly heading towards its use by date and that we have to bring about radical change if we’re going to survive. There are many ways of bringing about the change that’s needed. What this blog is about is what can be done in the here and now to boost sustainability, community cohesion and neighbourhood resilience in an increasingly volatile world. It’s about building the new world we need and want in the decaying shell of the old one we currently endure.
Basically, it’s about getting things done at the grassroots in our neighbourhoods in the here and now, by us and for us as residents, rather than waiting for our respective councils to pull their fingers out. The more we can collectively do for ourselves, the less we have to rely on our dysfunctional councils. Doing this means we can bring power right down to the grassroots where it belongs. What’s not to like about this?
