This film features Chas Jewett, from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, and Standing Rock Water protector, speaking in the Teacher’s Club in Dublin at an event supported by Afri, Comhlamh, Feasta and Friends of the Earth. This public meeting was part of a tour around Ireland.
Chas Jewett was to speak at the CDJ-sponsored event “A Thinkery on Water, Anti-Privatisation Struggles and the Commons” in University College Cork. We will also be uploading videos from that event to CDJ Plus in coming weeks.
Registration for the Community Development Society’s Conference on “Creativity and Culture: Community Development – Approaches for Strengthening Health, Environment, Economic Vibrancy, Social Justice and Democracy” is now open.
This event will explore some of the most significant local and global questions we face today in the context of the answer: community.
How will we address the challenges of poverty? Of growing inequality? Of the environmental crisis? Of the failure of our institutions?
Community is the answer will showcase community-based solutions from Scotland and around the world. It will allow community members, activists, practitioners, researchers and policymakers to come together and examine what actually matters to people, how to measure it and how to place it at the core of what we do.
The event is a collaboration organised by the International Association for Community Development (IACD), the University of Glasgow and the Community Learning and Development (CLD) Standards Council for Scotland.
