Relocalise Northern Rivers - September Gathering

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Do you want to see greater security for our food (and all related business activity) in the Northern Rivers?

This event will be building on the Sunday 7 May event (as part of the Localisation Weekend), where participants workshopped some tailored exercises lead by Michael Shuman. Specifically geared towards the economics of our local economy, we considered what we could collectively do to help strengthen, support, sustain and develop a more prosperous future for our region. Prosperity included food security, affordable housing, localised energy sources, diversity in health and education options and building longer term local dependence. 

At the end of Michael Shuman's workshop, participants decided to keep the discussion going through weekly online meetings and monthly in person gatherings, which have been happening.  

Join our next in-person gathering on 13 September!

We have discussed many of the challenges our local economy faces, but our burgeoning group really needs to clearly articulate our overarching charter for building a thriving economy for the region

We envisage the charter as the central hub of a series of spokes or features of a local economy, e.g., food security, affordable housing, energy security, transport, business investment, health and wellbeing and business mentoring.  

And we'd love your help with envisioning our goals, so join us at our next gathering!

You can also join our weekly online meetings

We also meet online each week on Wednesdays at 5pm, so email us if you'd like to join one of our meetings before 13 September.
