Saying hi
4 years ago

Hi Monica, thanks for the invitation and hello to the group. I certainly think that alternative economic strategies are vital to our survival as a species... not to mention many other species along the way. Hopefully I'll have some ideas to contibute at some point. For the moment I thought I'd introduce myself. Kind regards, Ian

Hi Cristiana,

Welcome to the group from a fellow newbie. Nice to have you onboard. As you say it would bw good if we can come up with some answers. I haven't any yet myself either but I'm fully behind the concept and am waiting for the muse to kick in!

Regards,

Ian

Hi from Alan

Hi everyone, I have just joined this group which sounds great. I don't have a great knowledge of global economics but would love to share some of the things I've done individually as a freelance environmental trainer and photographer trying to run a buisness while contributing to sustainability. Thank you Monica for the invitation!

Alan as an enviromental trainer, what are some different things you teach, and is this your business?

Hi Pamela, yes it is my own business. I mainly teach practical skills, building community gardens, wildlife gardening etc. I do teach about regeneration/sustainability but always with a practical emphasis focussing on actual things people can do or guiding projects in the community. I also teach carpentry skils to kids at risk of exclusion from school. I do photography too which I love, I put a few pics on here. What do you do?

Where I live I work at a hotel as a housekeeper. Not a very exciting job but it does pay the bills, so I am happy. Your job sounds really interesting.

It is interesting but truthfully, 80% of it is just preparing materials for sessions, cutting wood, chasing materials etc. The 20% of 'nice stuff' makes it all good. I used to work in construction which kept a roof over my head but a big recession in the 90's hit the industry hard so I retrained, went to college etc. I have never cared what people do for a living, all work is good in my book, especially if it pays the bills!
