Feasta's Water Commons group, along with Orla O'Donovan and Patrick Bresnihan, are organising this event at University College Cork on June 23. Speakers will include Standing Rock Water Protector Chas Jewitt, Miriam Planas of Aigua és Vida (Barcelona) and the European Water Movement, and Marco Iob, of the Italian Forum of Water Movements and European Water Movement.
Our annual week-long workshop at Rossbeigh in Kerry took place at the end of June 2017. We had a thought-provoking and stimulating week.
Feasta is delighted to offer the opportunity to engage with the inspirational thoughts of the late David Fleming – an original, radical thinker whose time seems to have come only after his death – in the company of the widely acknowledged expert on his work, Shaun Chamberlin.
The world’s first conference on world basic income will be held in Manchester (UK) on 4th February 2017. The event will explore a new practical solution to global inequality and poverty. Feasta’s Caroline Whyte, who is involved in the CapGlobalCarbon campaign, will be on a conference panel discussing practicalities.
