It’s been a busy time recently with lots of great stuff going on. The Eugene New Economy Working Group continued to meet and now has its own Facebook page!
We just had our first big public event with over 50 people gathering together to watch a documentary called “Fixing The Future” and discuss shared interests and project ideas! If you would like to see some of what occurred you can watch this video that was put together from the event:
It turns out the majority of the attendees are most excited by the idea of starting a Time Bank skill sharing network here in town as our first project. They already have one in Portland Oregon as well as Portland Maine!
The plan is to start having monthly potlucks to keep the momentum going and have some fun together while creating an opportunity to get organizing done. The first one will be on Buy Nothing Day (Nov 23rd). Let us know if you would like to attend or get on the mailing list to be kept in the loop.
