A volunteer’s experience, by Michael Gale

As well as the regular music and dance which happens here at the village square in Kissos, Sabine and I were excited to be taken to the neighboring village of Tsagarada for a concert performed by the string quartet “Fauves”.

Playing beneath the incredible massive plane tree known as Agia Paraskeri in the village square, the quartet performed an experimental piece which was composed as a dialogue with the tree.  This was followed by a Schubert piece “Death and the Maiden”.

This performance unfolded beautifully before us.  We sat amongst a large appreciative crowd within the unique atmosphere of this medieval village.  We sipped drinks and watched children play, above us the canopy of leaves of the historic central piece, the tree of Agia Paraskeri.

Kalikalos chooses the Carbon Conscious Way

Screen shot 2015-08-01 at 16.00.03After months of amazing inputs and interesting talks and teachings about Solidarity Economy, Systemic Shifts, Non Duality, Healing the body through dance, express freedom through art and poetry, how to create responsible balanced communities where to melt in harmony and trust; after all this and from the aware experience of our oneness Kalikalos chooses to go Carbon Conscious and to do it in an innovative way.

Thanks to the cooperation with Earth Deeds we can make out of this choice a wonderful Campaign to support the realisation of the first complete EDE – Ecovillage Design Education course in Greece.

Following the examples made available from the Circular Economy models we encountered during the Economy of Solidarity workshop we want to re-invest as recycle the balancing of our common footprint, accumulated through the flights and the transportation to arrive in Kalikalos (Co2 emissions in the atmosphere), in an amazing educational opportunity to offer to the greek grassroots activists now looking for new models and alternatives to routines that are not creating wellbeing for their societies at the moment.

So we started this campaign to include everyone and to give you the opportunity to join in this amazing adventure together, you can be part of the realisation of the first EDE Greece.
