ENERGIES FOR THE PLANET

CITIZENS’ CONVERGENCE FOR ENERGY TRANSITION :

In the Cévennes on the 26th, 27th and 28th August 2011, initiated by La Coordination Nationale des Collectifs contre le Gaz de Schiste, in partnership with national and international militant networks, fighting for an alternative energy future.

The French action groups opposing shale gas and oil propose a three-day civic get-together on the question of our energy needs and use. They will constitute the genesis of moderation, in itself the beginning of a scenario for a totally different future to the one which is imposed on us. We now need to launch leads through debates, which would then find a consensus.

But we need you !

To increase our knowledge and ideas, La Coordination Nationale des Collectifs contre le Gaz de Schiste invites militant networks to join them to think about and construct a programme for this citizens’ convergence for energy transition. Artists will be joining us: musicians, circus artists, story-tellers, street artists, slam artists, photographers, and there will be artwork and films.
There will also be an alternative energy village where different energies will be used, fore-running the future.

Any propositions to participate as a volunteer will be welcome. Contact for propositions : organisation@nonaugazdeschiste.com

Volunteers and participants will be able to stay in village accomodation which respects energy moderation and also cooperative and self-management principles in its accomodation and catering (autonomous energy campsite,
environment-friendly sanitary facilities and organic self-managed restaurants).

In order for the project to be successful, the organisers need to know your availabilities and skills. You can fill in the enrolment form on the following site : http://www.convergenceenergetique.org/or write to : Convergence Energétique, Les Taillades, route des Grottes, 34140 Mialet.
