- Welcome to Schumacher North, a regional forum devoted to exploring and promoting the ideas of deep ecology, sustainable development and social transformation pioneered by E.F. Schumacher, author of ‘Small Is Beautiful’.
Schumacher North offers a varied programme of talks, courses, conferences, and practical initiatives, aimed at bringing about the sane, sustainable and compassionate world that Fritz Schumacher and his successors have envisioned.
Saturday 8 October 2016, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm at the Quaker Meeting house, Carlton Hill,Woodhouse Lane, Leeds LS2 9DX.
Join us once again for Schumacher North’s annual get-together, sharing ideas, inspiration and home-grown/made/spun organic food as we plan another year of activities aimed at building awareness and a vision of ‘The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible’.
There will be sessions on Ecological Spirituality, E.F.Schumacher’s relevance today, Permaculture as a holistic approach to sustainability, and (we hope) a short film and talk about direct action against extreme fossil fuels at Drax.
Schumacher North is going through changes and this will be a great opportunity to help shape its future as an ongoing community helping to build a new world amid the impending ruins of the old!
