[by Luca Asperius] The initiative SoliOli, that succesfully closed its second campaign last Spring with more than 33.000 euro of direct orders from Germany to Greek cooperatives, organized a small trip to visit them in Greece, learn directly about their structure and workflows and strengthen the link between the producers and the consumers.
In July, as a first step of a broader inter-european cooperation and networking project, the online-magazines and platforms Italia Che Cambia and ImWandel organized in Potsdam a screening of video reports of italian grassroots projects with German subtitles. Between others, were screened interviews about the GAS movement, the MAG project, degrowth, permaculture and SlowFood. Soon the videos will be available online also with English subtitles. In September came the by now traditional Week of Change in Berlin and Brandenburg: collectives, associations, urban gardens, housing projects, farms and many others opened their doors and present themselves and their alternative solutions to a wide audience of visitors with guided tours and talk-events.
