We wish to all of you a happy and fruitful 2020!
At Cargonomia, with our partners, we had a very active year in 2019!
Our community cargobike sharing system is flourishing as you can see in this video:
Our Urban agroforestry project in Zuglo is also progressing, and in November with the help of local volunteers we added more than 30 new trees to the plot. We also spent a lot of time getting our hands dirty in the garden in Zsámbok and at our community bike repair center partner Cyclonomia.
We are thankful for the help and assistance of all of the student trainees who we had the privilege of hosting in the last year. Thanks to Marie, Simon, Corentin, Paul-Henri, Alexandre, Victor, Niels, Diego, Valentin et Valentin, Tom, Loena…
We also had the honor of being featured on the front page of Le Monde, a French national newspaper. The publication created a feature story chronicling our participatory research project which focuses on rethinking the role of Engineers from a Degrowth perspective.
After the holiday break our weekly organic vegetable box system will return with a great offering of organic vegetables from Zsámboki Biokert (first delivery on the 9th of January, orders can be placed until Tuesday January 7th at 8:00 am).
The holidays offer an opportune time for celebration, and also reflection on the future. What opportunities do we have to create peaceful alternatives to the collapse of our thermo-industrial civilization?
See for example our participation at BrainBar 2019 debate at Corvinus: Growth vs Ecology
We look forward to working together with you in 2020 and opportunities for new and continuing projects, cooperation and collective action.
