Achieving a better future for society can often seem impossible, a hopeless dream. But what elements of that future are already around us and just waiting to be brought forward, seized and shared?
Feasts for the Future will use the act of holding communal meals as a way of bringing elements of that better future into our shared present. It will develop the Feasts as a model that might support people in envisioning ambitious alternative futures together, especially with regard to local and sustainable energy. It will also try and help communities take decisive steps towards making their visions a reality.
