Sustainable Rural Community Project
Many activists around in london, have at one time or another expressed
an interest in setting up a sustainable, rural community.
This is a face-to-face forum to try and put those people in contact
with each other and to share ideas, visions and experience.
Forming a community is a process involving people with a common
vision; this isn't going to happen in one meeting.
The range of communities which exist in the UK, (over 200) are as
varied as the people who created them.
This is a meeting to discuss our commonalities and to help each other
realise our dreams.
Potential discussion includes:-
- Types of communities
- Planning law/ self-build/eco-housing;
- Setting up a housing co-op:visions;
- Existing communities-what they do;
- Social/domestic issues and conflict:
- Community -where, who and why: sustaining a community.
We would also like to invite people who have knowledge and/or
experience in areas relating to setting up a community and social/
financial models who are not necessarily thinking of joining one!
This is a DIY meeting, so please bring along ideas for discuss and
info. resources to share.
