Eco-Village – Eco-City
February 3rd7:00 pm. (Feb. 10th snow date)
Free event hosted by Cinema Academica at Ottawa U.
Lamoureux Hall, room 339
Imagine living a satisfying, healthy life while causing practically no damage to the Earth.  Better still, one can live well and improve the long-term well-being of planet and people.
Lanark Eco-Village aims to show how.
The Feb. 3rd discussion will be an introduction and discussion about Eco-Village living and how the perspective gained on that micro-scale might be applied elsewhere.
Earning a living or Making a living
Earning a living means making money and buying what one needs.  This process tends to separate one from the sources of one’s living.  When one makes a living, one works with soil and trees, tools, knowledge and good-will to produce goods or services for personal use or for trade.  In the process, one creates bonding relationships with the Earth and with other people.
This year Lanark Eco-Village has a number of openings where individuals can enjoy the natural world and learn about soil, growing, harvesting, cooking and preserving food; turning trees into boards, boards into buildings and buildings into a sauna, greenhouse, bath house, food storage and more.  Optional will be sessions on cultural evolution and the shifting of our over-grown, troubled society into one that is mature, healthy, stable and secure.
Facing the large problems of our times, the single most potent thing that you can do to help is to enjoy yourself.  More friends, creativity, learning, sport, service and appreciation and less stuff !  We could enjoying living so much that we wouldn’t have time to consume at a dangerous level.
Hope you can join us in discussing this on Feb. 3rd.

(from the video we will be watching):
Many protest movements around the world have been influenced by an 83-year-old political scientist, Dr Gene Sharp and his book From Dictatorship to Democracy. We are thrilled to announce that Dr Gene Sharp will be joining us at the Frontline Club in conversation with Ruaridh Arrow, journalist, filmmaker and director of the award winning documentary How to Start a Revolution to discuss the uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa and his work. From the ground floor of his home in Boston the 83-year-old runs the Albert Einstein Institution which is devoted to the study and promotion of the use of nonviolent resistance worldwide.

The 198 “non-violent weapons” listed in his book range from the use of colours and symbols, writing large banners in English to mock funerals and boycotts. First written in 1993 to support the opposition movement in Burma, Sharp’s work has now been circulated amongst dissidents around the world.
