In early December a large number of people came together to discuss the radical visions they had for the future – visions that Reclaim the Power, as a network, could help bring about.
It was a very open day of discussion with a clear structure, but with no pre-planned agenda. Everything we talked about was generated by participants, and a huge number of different ideas were placed on the table.
So what next? Well, the idea is that all of that discussion feeds into a month of creative proposal making before the next gathering. This will be a space for short and medium-term decision making where we work out what we’re doing in the next few months – and how this fits in with long term visions.
Rough proposal area groups formed at the December gathering, including:
1. How to challenge corporate power
2. Movement and diversity
3. Energy and fossil fuels
4. Positive solutions
If you would like to link up with these groups and input into proposals for next steps, just contact firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be put in touch with a group contact.
The proposal deadline is the 31st January 2014. Please try and follow this rough four point list when writing them, as it is essential that all the proposals be considered on an equal footing.
1. What is it?
2. How does it link to long-term strategic aims?
4. Resources needed? (inc, people, costs, skills)
Specific venue and agenda details to follow soon. In the meanwhile, please check the Gathering Notes page to see the discussions and outcomes of the last agenda.
See you soon,
