Session:Ants and Squirrels UnCivilization ReUnion

Today's culture (*) that demands unlimited growth is unsustainable.
(other problems are related to that: capitalism / patriarchy / centralization of production & wealth / globalisation/ consumerism ... )
Moving towards "commons" might be a solution -- except that there is still an anthropocentic focus on *humans*.
Since most of the people I know are from the hackers / engineering / Internet scene, we tent to be techno-fetishists and technocrats & techno-utopians.
I want us to CONSIDER THE SQUIRRELS and, in addition to being "Goddess of Spring", I want to be a "Speaker for the Squirrels" ;-) That's where the name of the meetup comes from.
Like-minded people have been talking for a year about this on the UnCivilization mailing list: https://lists.puscii.nl/wws/info/uncivilization
We will be in large numbers at CCCamp15 - join us! We are longing to meet each other outside of the cyber-space, and exchange hugs & stories & chocolate & tea!
Next summer there is a new meetup in preparation: in the wild mountains of Croatia, in the middle of nowhere: https://wiki.techinc.nl/index.php/User:Becha/Lika#2016
We are still looking for a cool name, so maybe we'll brainstorm one at this camp :)
