He's explainign even more in the freshly opened LAB 9. OPEN_POLITICS
Adam proposes to :
- Documenting the journey - exploring how communtiy builds along the journey, and how people's awareness of each other and of their environment alters. This could be used to emphasise the importance of open sailing in not just sustainable living through good applications of science and resources, but by building a strong community, which is, i believe, at the base of holistic practice.
- I wrote my Masters dissertation on looking at the links between protest walks and pilgrimage. Looking at the importance of the journey for people, at nomadic lifestyles, and of the spiritual importance of undertaking journeys. This project seems like a great way to extend my research.
- Developing some sort of outreach programme for the communities that we're passing through - not just in the cities but the villages also. Presumably you'll be passing a huge array of diverse communites - have you thought about how to talk to people about what you're up to/ get them involved and interested? I did an 80 mile walk across London last summer as part of the Climate Caravan - I found it was the best thing I've done to engage with people about issues we wanted to discuss, because we are coming to them, and getting involved in their communites. This seems to be the same, on an even bigger and more visual scale.
- Exploring ways for us to work as a community on board - modalities of socialising.
