The Reef Community workshops series #2 : Living green with others
We can’t consume our way to a healthy planet. But we can consume differently and make a small difference if we do it together in the whole household
Collectively, it would be easier to test things like:
- Building hacks: low energy heating to save electricity costs; energy storage technology; …
- Food habits: buy local, organic, bulk instead of plastic; produce your own food; …
- Transport optimisation: taking public transportation or biking; and not driving; …
And many more creative ideas …
Changing your behavior is hard to do when you’re alone, but easier and cheaper when you live in a community, when you share living and working spaces with others.
The workshop brings together humans of Brussels who aspire to live affordably, ecologically, socially; people who are trying sustainable life hacks and want to share; people who want to learn from others.
The Reef Community Workshop are facilitated conversations in a social space.
- Participants share experiences in living ecologically and learn from others.
- Participants are presented with an opportunity to collectively pursue a new kind of residential space.
Join in … if you aspire to live affordably, ecologically, and share a space with others. or are curious about it!
The workshop is part of Edgeryders effort to build the The Reef Community – a group of people who learn about and take part in a new kind of space: a future residential space for the 99%. In The Reef, inhabitants have individual apartments and privacy, but share common spaces like kitchens, living rooms, and office(s). The space will offer rich opportunities for rewarding and ecologically meaningful activities, and inhabitants are free to choose or initiate what interests them most. The Reef is in the design phase and anyone is welcome to get involved as a workshop contributor, a future inhabitant, or just a supporter!
The workshop will collect practical documentation about shared aspirations that can be implemented at The Reef, and enable those who wish to continue together to design a future home.
