Jitsi. Mastodon. Local solar. Cooperative economies.
Depaving. Food forests. Post-car organizing. COVID care.
Ending fossil fuels. Place-based worlds.
... To degrow and make transitions, we'll have to organize.
We'll have to flyer neighborhoods, to raise awareness and build capacity.
We'll have to gather locally, and grow foundations for change together (with COVID care.)
We'll have to run trainings and workshops, to teach new skills and onboard new ways. From de-paving, to food forests, to de-Googling, to native seed planting.
We'll have to advocate and campaign for the transitions we believe in.
We'll have to partner with networks, media, and newsletters to reach people.
We'll have to build collective power and voice in any tools we adopt.
We'll have to disrupt status quos.
We'll have to realize change together.
This is work, and that means compensation. That's why this is a cooperative — to meet the common economic, social, and cultural needs of members doing the work.
Is that work you want to be part of? Flyering. Workshops. Developing convivial tools. Teaching. Building. Softening. Making change together?
