An announcement from our friends at the Mutual Aid Network. Stay tuned for a similar event to be held in the UK in September.
August 22-28, 2016 Madison Wisconsin
Mutual Aid Networks (MANs) are a new type of networked cooperative ‘creating means for everyone to discover and succeed in work they want to do, with the support of their community.’
Come help build a neighborly new global economy!
We have what we need, let’s hook it up, plug it in and turn it on.
We can do it!
– 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 neighborly global economy. We’re hosting a summit in Madison Wisconsin to learn from each other and take our work and connections forward.
Goal: To bring together many active participants and leaders of projects and organizations, to share skills in ways that are practical and replicable, and to learn to apply them in our own communities. We will build collaborative relationships and ongoing mutual support.
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.
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.
Affordable sliding scale registration – Details TBA
