1. Susanne Croft & Sustainable Resources Inland NW


    from Respectful Revolution Added 14 1 0

    Ever since she was a Girl Scout, Susanne Croft has always believed in the value of saving things and not giving in to a culture of mindless wastefulness. Having grown up into an acute awareness of the various crises our global consumer society is facing, she became a determined advocate for “greening” society through combined government and private initiatives. After sharpening her teeth as the City of Spokane’s Sustainability Director, she decided to create a private consulting firm. She now provides information and assistance to businesses seeking to incorporate sustainable practices into their operations. In addition, her company hosts a forum where like-minded individuals and organizations can mingle, communicate and support each other as they seek to create a greener, respect-based and long-term oriented business environment. {35 W Main Avenue, Spokane, WA 99201}

    • Juliet Sinisterra & the Sun People Dry Goods Store


      from Respectful Revolution Added 6 1 0

      Juliet Sinisterra was new to retail when she opened in 2010 the “Sun People Dry Goods” store in Spokane, WA (now doing business as the “Sun People Bed & Bath Co.”). Inspired by the Transition Town movement, she calls her business “a mission-driven for-profit”: she also means to promote local resilience, reskilling and environmentally conscious lifestyle changes away from the most wasteful aspects of hyper consumerism. From 100% natural beauty products to organic, locally-made bedding, to anti-allergen baby products, to organic chicken feed, her store offers products and advice that appeal to a very broad constituency, from environmentally-conscious urbanites to more rural survivalist-types. This probably accounts for how rapidly Juliet’s store has become a popular landmark of sort in this old mining town turned beacon of consciousness. {5628 North Division Street, Spokane, WA}

                  Voices of Transition: Ein buchstäblicher Action-Film! Der Mut machende Dokumentarfilm Voices of Transition zeigt anhand positiver Beispiele aus verschiedenen Ländern, wie wir unsere Felder und Städte auf die doppelte Herausforderung von Klimawandel und Erdölknappheit vorbereiten können. Im Film kommen die wichtigsten Protagonisten des sozialökologischen Wandels in Frankreich, England und Kuba zu Wort. Das kubanische Beispiel beeindruckt vielleicht am meisten: Anfang der 90er holte die Tropeninsel eine katastrophale Wirtschaftskrise heim. Mit viel Improvisation und Geschick schafften es die Kubaner jedoch, aus der Not eine Tugend zu machen und ohne Öl auszukommen. Heute ist das Land zum weltweiten Vorreiter in urbaner Ökolandwirtschaft avanciert. Der Film zeigt mit wegweisenden Beispielen aus Frankreich, England und Kuba, wie mit einer postfossilen, relokalisierten Landwirtschaft die ganze Welt ernährt werden kann. Dank spannender, eindrucksvoller Bilder wird anschaulich gemacht, wie mit einem intelligenten Umgang mit Ressourcen, mit Baumreihen, Biodiversität und viel mehr Gemeinschaft unser Planet wiederbelebt werden kann. Im Mittelpunkt stehen lokale Strukturen, die erdölunabhängig funktionieren und dem Klimawandel entgegenwirken.

                    leipzig.degrowth.org/en/stream-towards-degrowth/ Interview for the "Stream towards Degrowth" with Rob Hopkins during the launch of his book “The Power of Just Doing Stuff” in Bielefeld, Germany. The project Stream towards Degrowth informs about events and actions related to Degrowth in the run-up to the 2014 Degrowth-Conference. The Fourth International Conference on Degrowth will take place in the German city of Leipzig from September 2-6, 2014. The focus of the 2014 conference is on concrete steps towards a society beyond the imperative of economic growth. The conference will give room for scientific debates, exchange between activists and economic pioneers as well as artistic approaches to the subject. Both scientific insights and concrete projects and policies will be presented, experimented with and discussed. It is part of an international cycle of events: so far, there have been conferences on degrowth in Paris 2008, in Barcelona 2010 and in Venice and Montreal 2012. Why degrowth? Many analyses from various scientific disciplines imply that a growth-based economic and social system cannot have a future: Despite a growing number of technological solutions for “Green Growth”, inequality and the destruction of nature are significantly on the rise. It is high time to develop economic and social models that are independent of growth and can provide for a good life for everybody.

                      WHAT COMES AROUND. GOES AROUND. Is a powerful catalyst for a new kind of economy in the Totnes area – vibrant, bustling, abundant. Every year for one jam-packed productive day, we bring entrepreneurs, investors, and other change makers together to learn from each other, form new relationships, and hopefully, to begin working together on new enterprises. What kind of enterprises? Social, sustainable, regenerative, resilient – new companies that create meaningful livelihoods and contribute to the community in positive ways. Everyone has a stake in their local economy and everyone can be an investor, too. Entrepreneurs need all kinds of support. Yes, financial capital is important, but so are other forms of support, from office space to child care. Entrepreneurs supported by the community do better. The economy does better, too. Everybody wins. tinyurl.com/LEF2014
