First Green Action Meeting

Come and meet Green Action.  We are a society that takes practical action on environmental, social and political issues. We run various activities and campaigns which everyone is welcome to get involved in, and we try to encourage anyone with ideas to put them into action. We are non-hierarchical, everyone is an equal member with an equal voice, so don’t expect us to tell you what to do, do it yourself! If you have a decent idea that you think might work then let people know and together we can try and put it into action.  See Who is Green Action? for our constitution and ethos.

Agenda….

Consensus Training Day

You are cordially invited to a day in efficient and fair decision making.

Consensus is a way of making decisions that includes everybody. It avoids having to vote and creating ‘winners’ and ‘losers’. It is a thorough and enjoyable way of making decisions and holding meetings… If used correctly.

Today is open to anyone, if you’ve never heard the word consensus until now or if you’ve been using consensus daily for the past 5 years.

Consensus is a great tool, and the more people within a group who have had proper training in consensus and facilitation, the smoother your meeting will run.

The day is run by a member of Seeds for Change http://www.seedsforchange.org.uk/

The Zine, Campaigns & Other Stuff Fair

Zine fair including Green Action zine!

 

The presses at Footprint Workers Co-op have been churning out campaign materials, radical publications, newsletters, gig posters, zines and books for TEN YEARS.

We’re proud of all the amazing projects we’ve been able to support over the years with our printing services, everything from travel zines to radical action on climate change, from shiny annual reports to grungy diaries.

To celebrate we’re having a party and hosting a zines and campaigns fair and organising a tree planting weekend for our 10th Anniversary celebration of cooperation, resistance, DiY culture and self publishing.

The Zine, Campaigns & Other Stuff Fair – 13 November 2010

We’re inviting all our customers from around the country, fellow co-operators and other projects and publishers we want to promote, to hold a stall at the zine and campaigns fair to show everyone what they’re up to and to sell their work.
