Reason for optimism is leapfrogging - thats when a society/place that was excluded from industrial age networks leapfrogs an old system to a new one; about a third of the world never had wired telephone lines, now almost all have mobile (text version); more than a quarter of the world never had electricity grids, now microsolar is linking in;.

A People's Takeover of the World's Farming
We could be looking forward with real optimism to the next million years. But to achieve a world that is truly good to live in, for us and our fellow creatures, we need to rethink everything - beginning with food and farming.

We need to go back to first principles - the economy, the politics and the underlying science and moral issues. Ultimately we need to realise that all of our big ideas are rooted in metaphysics - the pursuit that has gone missing and needs to be restored.

Nothing is more important than agriculture.

Food, Farming and a 21st Century Renaissance

A short course with Colin Tudge, Ruth West, Tim Crabtree and Stephan Harding and a day at Whippletree Farm

We need 'a people's takeover of the world's farming', based on agroecology, food sovereignty and economic democracy. This may sound too daunting for words, but enough is going on around the world over to suggest it is already happening. The task is now to identify the ideas and initiatives that are truly helpful and build upon them.

Come and discuss what’s needed, talk to people who are already on the case, let us know what you’re doing and learn how you can get involved.

Some of the areas we will be covering are:
1: THE IDEA OF RENAISSANCE
2: THE BIOSPHERE
3: ENLIGHTENED FARMING
4: A TRUE FOOD CULTURE
5: GREEN ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY
6: THE THINGS ABOUT SCIENCE
7: THE ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT THAT’S GONE MISSING; METAPHYSICS
8: WHAT CAN WE DO?

This course is for anyone who is concerned about the future and how we can make change rapidly, through the food we eat and the way we produce it, buy it, cook it and think about it. It will be a mix of talks, discussion and field trips. No experience necessary.
