Events in 2013 – the Live Simply series
Here is a history of some of our previous events, especially the Live Simply series including the talk by Satish Kumar at the Keynsham Music Festival July 2013.
Here is what the Live Simply Project is about:
We are stuck in a vicious cycle of over-consumption and dependence on economic growth. This is unsustainable and is making us ill. How did we get like this?
We are resourceful animals: resilient, adaptable, cooperative and artistic; but also violent, competitive, brutal, greedy and jealous. Above all though, we are clever. We are, in fact, a freak of nature. For more click here.
This talk was the first event hosted by the Live Simply Project co-hosted with Bath Literature Festival. Here we heard how a seriously imaginative entrepreneur can solve some of the world’s food problems by breeding flies!
Mike Feingold is a local patriarch of Permaculture. This was a well-attended, fascinating and entertaining event
The amazing Steve Glover standing next to his beautiful bowl of salad. Steve is founder of The Severn Project – a commercial horticulture business and rehabilitation programme for people with mental health and substance dependence problems. Photo taken at the Live Simply Barbecue on 18th July 2013
We showed this scary film at Community@67 on 13th June 2013 as part of Live Simply programme. It tells the inside story of the 2008 financial crash. A sobering picture.
The incomparable Satish Kumar in the Big Tent of Keynsham Music Festival on 5th July 2013. This was the first large ticketed event put on by Live Simply. Nearly 300 people packed into the space to see the great man – with the fitting backdrop of trees casting their shadows across the tent. We learnt a great deal, not only from Satish, but from putting on this big event.
Ecologist and academic from Bristol University provided a fitting finale to the Live Simply series of events themed on the environment. His brief was to talk about how we can all help to steer our communities in a more sustainable direction. A packed room of local people at St Dunstans listened with rapt attention to his wisdom.
