We are a grassroots action group working to build a sustainable and resilient Albuquerque. We are kicking the fossil fuel habit as individuals, neighborhoods, and as a city. We are relocalizing our food, education, products, and jobs, which lowers the cost of living and improves our health and community spirit. Together, we are capable of coping with the economic and ecological crises that are already happening as we become interdependent yet self-reliant.
Join us for our monthly gatherings where we network, discuss sustainability and resilience in Albuquerque, get updates from our work groups, share food, scheme ideas, do activities, and learn something new.
Our next gathering is Wednesday, December 7th at 6:30pm at First Unitarian Church (Carlisle & Comanche, map here)
The Story of Stuff
As the holiday season comes upon us, this time of giving thanks and gifts often leads to extensive shopping and consumerism. We’d like to re-think that tradition with a screening and discussion of the film The Story of Stuff. We’ll begin with hot drinks and a snacks-only potluck at 6:30pm and start the film promptly at 7:00pm. After the short film, we’ll have group discussions and a table at the side where you can browse the gifting table — bring a used item you would like to gift!
What to bring*:
- A snack or beverage to share for the snack potluck
- A few dollars to contribute to the space
- Up to 3 used item in good condition for the gifting table
(you must retrieve your items that are not taken by the end).
*No one will be turned away. Please come even if you cannot contribute.
Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook event. We hope to see you there!
