Are you a developer with Drupal experience looking for a working break? Campfire Convention's first Hackathon is planned for October on the Greek island of Paros...
Let’s build a conscious social network in a week...
We are delighted to welcome Victoria Wheeler to the Campfire community as our first ever Digital intern. Victoria graduated with a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing with Philosophy and Ethics from Bath Spa University. She is an inspiring and talented writer, with a passion for creating innovative content as you will see from her forthcoming articles for Campfire. We are excited at the prospect of Victoria helping us to engage and involve more young people in Campfire and she has no shortage of ideas about how we can do this.
Campfire's World Harmony event over summer solstice featured a range of speakers and panels, covering a wide variety of subjects, ranging from designing ethical governance to Building Our Regenerative Future, the Power of Yin to how Covid lockdown has affected The Way We Grieve Now. Jamie Catto, Daniel Pinchbeck, Lynne Franks, Indra Adnan, David Monteith, Theo Simon and others look at where society is headed and how we can effect change and influence its direction.
The Beacon fire symbolises unity and connection. We want to invite the practice of lighting beacons more often... particularly at the turns of the year. This year we intend to light beacon fires as a sign of unity and harmony at our Summer Solstice event (in our symbolic Orchard space) where we are inviting all our members and participants to light a Beacon fire of whatever shape or size feels right at 20:20 (8:20 pm on Saturday 20th June).
Sparking at Campfire this week: We announce our World Harmony summer solstice event; we're opening it up to volunteers, Julie Horsley talks about The Orchard, we salute the vision of permaculture founder Bill Mollison , Henry Sparks 'Visions of Eden', Jason Hine warns against the 'suicide' of reopening economies too early, Beth Salmon's hi-vibe kitchen cooks up a vegan nettles stew and we have created guidelines in the spirit of positive posting after some recent contentious posts and discussions on our Facebook group.
