You are invited to come to GAS 2016, St-Imier Switzerland, where we want to co-create a culture inspired by permaculture principles.
On the weekend of September 16-18 we will meet for the 5th time in the tradition of our Beau-Sejour gatherings. This year we want to gather our abundant energies to power something we are calling a “synergy hub” and change the world together.
We will also celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Occupy movement on September 17th. The occupy movement has brought about a solid network that is collaboratively building towards nothing less than a new and better society.
With the synergy hub network, we are setting up a platform available to you and your projects to connect locally and globally with like-minded people. GAS 2016 is an opportunity to self-organize and coordinate this powerful cultural change that we are igniting this autumn.
Whether you are a change maker or want to become one, whether you are Occupy, Transition, Maker, Hacker, Peer-to-peer, Next Edge, Edgeryder, anarcho-this or anarcho-that, social entrepreneur, artist, philanthropist, guerrilla gardener, insider, outsider, this-activist or that-activist, this call is a personal invitation to you.
Fill in the registration form to join us this September on Mont-Soleil, above St-Imier, in the Jura mountains of Switzerland.
For GAS16, we will bridge together offline and online participation. So, you can also sign up to join us online via tools such as Telegram, Zoom and Trello.
