Join us for a free introductory workshop on a new way to survive the economic insanity around us. This community-building tool helps us flex our mutual aid muscles, learn to trust ourselves instead of the so-called experts, and build security for us and our community.
We’re not going back to some glorious economy that looks like 2006 or 1986 or 1956. For ecological and peak oil reasons, we’re not going back to an economy premised on cheap energy. One value of these clubs has been for people to look at the hard information together – and not remain in denial – and get on with making plans based on new economic and ecological realities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
At the Introductory Workshop, those who want to form a club commit to 5 additional education sessions. There is a step-by-step program for each of these facilitated sessions which includes watching videos, reading articles and participating in interactive exercises. The optimal size is 10 – 25 adults. To cover costs for the 5 sessions, we will ask for a $10 donation but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
