Eutopia: A practice seminar on Permaculture, Downshifting and Community Spirit

The Initiative for Central and Eastern Europe has conducted, in cooperation with the Casa de Cultură Permanentă, a Practice Seminar on the topics of Permaculture and its principles, Downshifting and Community Living. The Seminar took place in urban Cluj-Napoca, Romania between the 15th and 22nd of September.

The experiment included living, cooking and taking care of each other, the house, the garden, four cats and a dog, together. Additionally we have watched films on the topics, discussed key issues of downshifting and our own position in a transition development. Working on an organic farm, making soap and toothpaste, as well as exploring the largest local flea market provided practical experience and inspiration for further practice.

We found that these topics are a good starting point for young people to try out an alternative form of learning and getting involved in activism.
