Community Dialogue
“What Is San Miguel’s Growing Solidarity Economy?”
Wed, Aug 5, 11am-1pm
Sala Quetzal, Reloj 50A
60 pesos
Bilingual event

Like communities the world over, San Miguel faces problems of inequality and climate change. A group of local organizations is trying to solve both at once. This bilingual dialogue will bring together activists in Las Rancheritas, CEDESA, COSIDA, TOSMA, GAIA, Ayotzinapa San Miguel, and others building bottom-up, democratic solutions to the climate crisis. They are replacing contaminated aquifer water with rain catchment; developing networks of food production and barter; and introducing dry toilets, recycling, and photo-voltaics through community action.  Can San Miguel become a bilingual leader into a new world?  These groups think it can. Join in the dialogue.
