Things are hotting up
14 Jul 2005 by drew
Only six weeks ’til Greenbelt, and things are hotting up.
In this story:
- some information on what we have planned for Greenbelt 05 weekend itself
- a request for help in managing our presence on site (just two hours a day!)
- three new actions and a reminder of two others
At the Festival there will be two Generous ‘strands’.
Strand one is three generous sessions in the GB Talks programme:
- a get-together for all 100 of us pilot members of the Generous community to see how we feel. (Likely Saturday morning.)
- an open-to-all Generous Testimony session, with a series of people telling their brief story of their Generous year – and then opening out into new ideas/inspiration from a wider community with an invitation to join the network
- a big event on the Sunday afternoon when Leo Hickman of The Guardian will be our guest. (Leo is author of ‘A Good Life, The Guide To Ethical Living’ – More here
Strand two will be a daily rolling programme of ‘consultations’ at the Generous ‘post’ in the Networks Space, located close to GB Angels in the Emporium Big Top venue. These will be low-key advice type sessions on everything from composting to green power supplies, from switching to an ethical bank to wise charitable giving. We will need to recruit a dozen or so Generous members to help us host this area, which will also be a place for people to make inquires about the Generous vision – and sign up if they would like to.
Three ways to help Generous at Greenbelt this year
- If you can offer a couple of hours over the weekend to help run the Generous area – giving out resources, chatting to people please email email@example.com. Thanks!
- If you are interested in giving your testimony, talking about how Generous has made you think about how your live please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you have a passion or an area of expertise and could offer to run an advice session please also email us at email@example.com. (Suggested sessions include composting, ethical banking, organic food, LPG cars energy ethical funerals, and more ideas are welcome.)
