With some friends we are setting up a local informal environmentalist group, with the aim of pushing forward good practices, spread sustainability, ecological awareness, and this kind of . stuff.

So far we are planning of doing , production, workshops, library, , collective purchase from farms, but we'd like to have more on the todo list.

Help me get out of our echo chamber, and give me your ideas about more activities we could engage ourselves and the local communities in.


@arteteco you could promote setting up resilient mesh networks for low-cost/free accessible internet access in your community. Not too hard for someone with some tech know-how.

@tulsi Thanks, here in Italy we have ninux(ninux.org/FrontPage) which is a similar project. I'm doing that with my hacklab though, didn't think of integrating it with the environmentalist group... it may be nice to have the two working together maybe!

@arteteco nodes could also function as environmental science research/ weather stations


@tulsi That would be more time and resource consuming that we can afford at the beginning (we don't have much money and still haven't got a plan to become economically sustainable), but it goes into the todo list for when we'll feel more established, thanks!
