We would like to invite you to E K O T O P I A 2005
taking place in the nature reserve Saharna, in Moldova
This year's theme is Alternative Technologies [AT], but as always the program is to be created by the participants. We choose AT as the theme because we would like to have a lot of skill-sharing on issues such as renewable energy, solar power, waste management and recycling, green building and eco-housing, green food production, windmills, green economy, green design and architecture, and green-everything.
Beside the alternative technologies there will be special focus on
- east-west issues in Europe
- planing of local and global actions
- developing ideas for new projects and campaigns on the European level
The most important is that the program of EKOTOPIA is dependent on YOU:::: to give a workshop, on AT, east-west or any topic you are interested in, climate change, sustainable transport, GMOs, organic food, action planing, alternative media, global politics and economics, migration, racism and xenophobia, etc.
If you want to give a workshop, please fill in the online workshop form [available soon]
If you want to participate fill in this form [available soon]
Also, we would really appreciate if you fill in the EKORATES questionnaire and send it to email@example.com
People applying for the travel reimbursements are expected to fill in the questionnaire.
People who need travel reimbursement apply before June 20th. If you don't need travel reimbursement you can register until July 10th. Registering in advance is very helpful for the people organising the logistics!!
A great way to come to Ekotopia is the annual Ekotopia BikeToUr. This year, the BikeToUr starts in Banja Luka June 17th, Bosnia.

Faculty for Radical Aesthetics - Call for Applications
In the context of two research projects starting in autumn 2005 the eipcp
will organize a transnational pilot course for Radical Aesthetics. The
components of this one-year course will take place in different European
cities (Barcelona, Linz, Lüneburg, Napoli, Paris, Vienna). Aimed at
fostering the transnational exchange and discourse on art and activism,
they will reflect on concrete activist and critical projects, accompanying
them with discursive events and theoretical workshops.
20-06-2005 19:37One land, two people. That's how it's usually represented. And after all, both Palestinians and Israelis display the map, the one map from the Mediterranean to the Jordan river, from the gulf of Aqaba to the Lebanese border. If you can't read Arabic or Hebrew you might not notice the difference between a Israeli and a Palestinian map. But is it really one land? What happens when one place has two names?
