Brian Davey argues that, while there is no point in hoping that the powerful will manage to resolve the multiple crises we're facing, we can still work on developing permacultural designs of local cultivation space and residential areas, and on ways to create soils and grow trees that absorb carbon, so that new forms of living and organising may become possible.

Food for Thought/Lón Intinne, 18th May 2018, County Mayo

Against the backdrop of Afri’s Famine Walk on Saturday 19th, this innovative event is intended to explore today’s challenges both in Ireland and globally, in conversation and through culture using the Great Hunger and Richard’s legacy as backdrops, including solidarity with the global social justice movement, the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, climate action and food sovereignty. A strand in Irish exploring ecological parallels in culture and language will be facilitated by Teacht Aniar.
