Social Ecology Workshop: Restoring the Spirit

A two hour workshop on Social Ecology; on what it means, on how we can empower ourselves and others around us to make social change?

To implement a Social Ecological Organisation that will tackle the multiple hierarchies in our society, as well as having a direct impact on the structure and development of our city. While also supporting the many struggles nationally and internationally. To move towards a more symbiotic relationship with each other and the natural world; to seriously tackle the issues of climate change and domination.

This is not another talk by a fancy pants (although an explanation on Social Ecology will be given), it's a discussion attempting to give everyone a voice on the development of a Social Ecological Organisation.
