I had the great pleasure to lead and co-organize a wonderful international festival – Cohabitat Gathering, as a volunteer for the Cohabitat Foundation. These were two days of meetings and lectures by experts and fascists of natural architecture, open-hardware machines, local autonomy, and the concept of community building. As a civilisation we are ready to give up outdated conceptions of development-for-development, we shall go further. We are able to create a healthy, comfy living space for all and retrieve the time for exploring the mystery of human being. The festival was a platform for those who feel this new quality and want to share it.
The festival was organized as part of the crowdfunding action at polakpotrafi.pl. We collected 97 877.19 zł! The community spoke :)
The festival topics: • Food sovereignty and family farms • Living together – living communities and alternative ways of living • An 'incredible edible' campaign for local food and a community focused on urban crops • Community tools – software for supporting community activities and communication • Revolutionary way to run an organic farm • Platoniq – freedom, equality and p2p • Advanced construction of straw bales • Things that you do not understand do not belong to you • Building on grounded technology – experience, research and architectural projects • Call on the solar revolution! • Collectives: Creating conditions for social openness and sharing
