A discussion on the steps our local community can take towards becoming more self-sufficient. Come and take part and share your ideas for projects that you would like to see happen, from small gestures to grand designs! 
 
The Llandrindod community has been doing great things to make ourselves 'future-proof''. However, with climatic impacts accelerating around the world, there is a long way to go, and worryingly little time to do it. Our dream is for Llandrindod to become a beacon for sustainability, local food production, and resilient communities. So… where do we go from here?
 
The evening will start with an introduction, then brief talks highlighting potential problems and opportunities in different areas, by Dorienne Robinson (Food), Sam Evans (Community) and Andy Bull (Energy). The chair will then open the discussion, with the aim of finding plans that can and will be taken forward to the next stage.

From small gestures to grand designs, all our activities combine to shape our community's future. The time has come to start taking those steps!

Join us for a film screening and a discussion of the issues facing our food and farming systems here in Wales. 
 
In Our Hands is a film made in association with The Landworkers' Alliance, telling the inspiring story behind the blood, sweat and tears of the farmers seizing the Brexit moment to outgrow the industrial food system. In 67 minutes, this film follows a group of different farmers and food producers over one year (2016), to observe their stories of success and the challenges they have faced.

A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity is a documentary that follows a community in Australia who came together to explore and demonstrate a simpler way to live in response to global crises. Throughout the year the group build tiny houses, plant veggie gardens, practice simple living, and discover the challenges of living in community.

The film documents the community’s learning process as well as exploring the global issues we’re facing through interviews with some of today’s most interesting speakers on the subjects, including permaculture co-originator David Holmgren, filmmaker and activist Helena Norberg-Hodge, climate change activist David Spratt and many more.

We will use the film as a starting point for a discussion on our own possible responses to the current global crises.

  • How important is it to consider reduction of material usage as an alternative (and addition) to technological fixes?
  • How could our community work together to pool resources & skills?
  • Do we need to learn to depend more on each other and our community? How could we facilitate this?
