Red and Blue Victoria 2016

Event: -

Red and Blue Vic 2016 is a four-day participant run gathering which aims to establish thriving sustainable communities and food growing systems with a focus on preparing for future scenarios we may face within the next 50 years.

The event is inspired by Permaculture co-founder David Holmgren's "future scenario" work and will be held Abundance Farm located in Pyrenees Ranges of Central Victoria, near Beaufort, from Saturday, 29th October to Tuesday, 1st November 2016.

Over four days, attendees will participate in a range of engaging workshops, discussions and events exploring two major themes; a social decline theme which could be caused by peak oil, slow climate change, or economic collapse (Blue) and a severe collapse theme and scenarios such as severe climate change or global nuclear war (Red). Attendees will also discuss topics such as skills, technology, systems and cultural issues surrounding preparation for these scenarios. For the full program of workshops, panel discussions and events, please click here.

The event is largely self-organised with attendees expected to contribute both financially and by volunteering their time either teaching or undertaking supporting roles, and or supporting the host sites on by joining any of the perma blitzs during the event. Click here to register for a workshop.
