Extreme Energy Gathering
April 27, 2013 - April 28, 2013Free
Extreme Energy is the process where energy extraction methods grow increasingly more intense over time, as easier to extract resources are depleted. A number of new extraction methods threaten to devastate our countryside, while increasing our contribution to the global ecological crisis.
Empowering and connecting communities to resist this destruction is crucial. The gathering aims to provide a space to allow diverse campaigns to meet, share information and support each other. In particular it is intended to help network people who are organising to resist including those from threatened communities.
The Extreme Energy Gathering is taking place at the Merci Centre in Manchester on the weekend of 27/28th April 2013.
MERCi is an independent charity which runs a number of sustainability projects. The organisation also manages Bridge 5 Mill, Manchester’s most sustainable conference centre.
A full programme for the weekend will be uploaded shortly.
For individuals planning travel arrangements, the Gathering will be starting at 10am on Saturday 27th (with tea from 9:30am) and finishing 4.30pm on Sunday 28th April. However crash space and food will be available from 6pm on the Friday night (please let us know if you are planning to arrive on Friday).
