Open Space Meeting
This was a really positive and productive morning at the Quaker Meeting House Saturday 2nd March, with a number of new faces bringing fresh ways of looking at sustainability in Wilmslow. We had a number of groups looking at Green Spaces, the Town Centre plans, Transport issues and how to involve children and the wider community in our work. We’ll be looking to bring some of the suggested ideas to life over the coming months so watch this space!
The showing of the film “The Economics of Happiness”
This took place at Wilmslow Library, Wednesday evening 6th March, and drew a really good crowd covering a wide age range. It demonstrated how consumerism and globalisation has damaged the lives of not only the people of the village of Ladakh in Tibet featured in the film, but also people world-wide, making all less happy and affecting livelihoods. It was followed by a lively and constructive discussion about how we can turn a three-decade policy of globalization into mobilizing flourishing local economies in order to bring prosperity not only to our own communities, but to every community on earth.
