Winter Webinar- Forming Solidarity Networks around Amsterdam

December 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This webinar is the result of listening to and learning from 16
different community food gardens, throughout the city.
Nieuw-West (10), Oost (4) and Noord (2). In each individual community evaluations were done using five simple activities:
1) a round of gratitude for the garden
2) sharing biggest successes along 5 themes
3) documenting state of reciprocity (giving/receiving) between different co-operating groups
4) sharing biggest challenges along the same themes
5) imagining dream relationships with co-operating groups with practical next steps
From the 16 gardens we have identified the most common challenges and
the first winter webinar will focus on political and ecological
themes. We do this by asking representatives of gardens to explain
their experience of challenges to the group. We invite others to
share successes as possible solutions to the challenges.
After elaborating challenges and sharing successes, there will then be
time for an open round of discussion with time to generate future
learning questions and make open solidarity requests. We are excited
to finish with collaboration rooms. This is where potential allies host a space to
introduce their initiatives and start a conversation to enter into mutual support.
