Small is….festival, Rugby I UK I 2009
In September ASF-UK participated in the “Small is…” Festival in Rugby. The event was organised and inspired by Michael Schumacher’s book “Small is Beautiful” and was initiated as an opportunity for the exchange of questions of international development and the planet. The themes were:
Small is…Economic, Appropriate, Personal or Political.
ASF-UK participated in the event and organised a workshop that looked at the notion of home and community and how we engage with the communities that we live in. Through participatory tools the barriers preventing community initiatives and action from taking off were explored together with the tactics for overcoming these. Methods for prioritizing tactics and how to develop an action plan for how to start small and then scale up successfully were discussed.
