Click here for event registration and more information
COME HELP BUILD A NEIGHBOURLY NEW GLOBAL ECONOMY! We have what we need, let’s connect, collaborate and make it happen! We can do it!
Communities around the world are piloting MANs designed to meet life’s economic needs – food justice, work redesign, sustainable energy, community justice, housing and transportation access, travel and culture exchange, etc etc. Local MANs are connecting in a global cooperative, the Main MAN, in order to support each other’s success and build a network of networks that can engage the 100% in a neighbourly
global economy. We’re hosting a summit in Hull, United Kingdom to learn from each other and take our work and connections forward.
What to expect: New learning, nuts and bolts action for local communities, access to ongoing technical assistance, training in using MAN tools for your own projects plus mutual support among projects around the world, deepening knowledge, building relationships. And fun, music, art, and nature. Join us prior to the summit for Hull’s Freedom Festival 2-4th September. Then on the 5th, the summit will start with an overview of the Mutual Aid Network, go on to visioning #thesocietywewant on the 6th in partnership with the Webb Memorial Trust, deepening to exploring the tools including tech and then focussing in on the Hull pilot at the end of the week with a day outdoor camp and evening celebration to finish.

Where possible we will offer homestays, feed you delicious food, and schedule plenty of time for enjoyment. You will leave with concrete actionable ideas for how to work with people in your own community to build your dream economy.

Registration Fees Explained: Sliding Scale – Day Tickets and Full Week:
Wherever possible, we are using MAN tools (eg sharing, gift, timebanking) to create this week of events. However there are some real monetary costs we need to cover so we would be very grateful if you be as generous as possible in your registration amount. Of course we want everyone to be able to attend and participate. If these suggested donations put an undue burden on you financially, you are allowed to select a lower fee. We ask you to make an honest evaluation of what is within your means for attending the conference. If you are able to contribute more it will help us greatly both with the cost of programming, travel and food. Any excess will be put into the Mutual Aid Network which you can all be part of! There is also a ticket option for time exchange. We need lots of helpers to help with cooking, accommodation hosts, food contributions and bicycles. Is there anything else you can offer? Let us know and we’ll be in touch! Thank you in advance.
