Yesterday I gave a masterclass about Self-sufficiency in Supermarkt. 50  engaged participants committed 3 hours of their time in generating interesting ideas and discussions. Johannes presented us his experiences of building an earthship in new Mexico, together with architect Michael Reynolds and the Earthship academy. Go ahead and check Johannes’ blog for an insight view of this experience. We ‘ve also heard about the project Soulardarity, where a group of citizens in Detroit created off-the grid solar-powered streets lamps because the state didn’t have money to provide the public streets with electricity! Some teams pointed our dependance to technology and how difficult is to be autonomous regarding internet. The spanish project guifi is be a step closer to this attempt. Also, how to be independent regarding health care? is that possible? Some other ideas included public compost toilets, community education programs, platforms that combine knowledge, materials and even services about urban self-sufficiency, while the most wise ones suggested that the only thing we can do about change of mentality is to spread awareness and let time do the job!
