2010 Hardwick Workshop Series

      Comments Off on 2010 Hardwick Workshop Series

On Sunday March 28th 2010, we are inaugurating the first of a series of exploratory workshops in the beautiful setting of Hardwick House and grounds, entitled “Taking Control of Our Lives.” These will be run in parallel with workshops at the ICPPC Eco Centre in Southern Poland.

The first workshop in the series will explore the main issues raised in Julian Rose’s controversial new book “Changing Course for Life – Local Solutions to Global problems” and will ask: “Is it time to establish a new platform for decentralised community based people power?”

The programme will start with a short introduction to the activities on the Hardwick Estate the majority of which has been organically managed since 1975.
