About us

  • 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.

Schumacher North Annual Gathering

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!
