We are big fans of Joanna Macy and The Work That Reconnects (WTR). The WTR network joined forces with award-winning film makers Emmanuel Cappellin and Anne-Marie Sangla to launch the documentary ‘Once You Know’.
Several of the registered WTR Network Facilitator Members will be hosting screenings of this moving film and facilitating post-screening WTR experiences to support us in processing the emotions the film stirs and help build resilience and solidarity.
So please follow their invitation to this special online event series, the last screening is on Monday, November 22nd (NZ Time).
Please note, registration comes with a minimum US$15 donation, which will support the filmmaker and the film production and distribution companies that have made this international screening possible, along with covering the cost to the WTR Network.
We’ll also have: – interactive installations – delicious kai – big fun!
There’ll be urban agriculture experts, artists, and speculative designers (future thinkers) there to guide the generation and communication of future food ideas. Decision-makers will arrive in the evening to hear about the day’s outcomes and meet our young changemakers over a BBQ futures feast produced by local chefs.
The garden will be an in-context site for all of these groups of people to meet, listen, share, and potentially collaborate, moving ideas beyond this initial workshop.
It’s shaping up to be a hugely impactful youth event. We’re looking for young people between the ages of 15 and 25 who are interested in:
– community gardening and urban farming
– indigenous food sovereignty and climate action
– waste minimisation and creative reuse sustainability-focused cooking, foraging and mahinga kai
– eco architecture and urban planning (edible green spaces) storytelling for social change
Please RSVP via email to Alex firstname.lastname@example.org! Please note FFF Aotearoa NZ isn’t involved in organising this event, we are simply standing in solidarity with BGI, Grow Space Wellington and The Sustainability Trust.
Bring your lunch and share kai & korero with people who want more action on climate justice . We will sing action songs and there will be chalk so we can leave our messages for the politicians at parliament.
