Urban farming, whether found in large urban cities like Chicago , or in a Palestinian refugee camp near Bethlehem , is rapidly becoming a worldwide movement.

Alexei Navalny & the Anti-Corruption Movement in Russia

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) If we remember that the Maidan “demonstrations”, which led to the problems, which is still expressing it mildly, in the Ukraine also started claiming to be an anti-corruption movement. We can almost guarantee that one major player behind the scenes, and the main source of funds for Navalny and his “movement”, is the very same who has been behind the Ukraine issue and those color revolutions in many other countries.

How to Create a Movement for Change

Green Prophet

If you believe in yourself, in people and causes, then you must believe in movements because these are three major components of a movement. In its simplest form, a movement is a group of people, small or large, working together for a common cause, be it social, political or cultural. Any one person, from the billions living on earth, can start a movement. Studies have shown that all movements have similar elements in them.

The Party – the working class movement – is always right

Green (Living) Review

Basically the meaning is – the true one – that the movement, the party, is always right to fight against capitalism and imperialism, against injustices and for the right of the proletariat. That does not, however, mean that the movement, the party, can do no wrong on other levels; far from it. In all other aspects the party, or whatever kind of movement of the proletariat, must be open to criticism and be prepared to accept such criticism, where valid, and act accordingly.

What the Conservation Movement Can Learn from Martin Luther King, Jr.

It’s also a good time to reflect on the lessons that other movements can learn from Dr. King’s leadership. Seeing the hotel—exactly as it looked 45 years ago, and still a vivid image in my memory—I couldn’t help but think of all that environmentalists could accomplish if we could generate a similar kind of public passion and conviction that fueled the civil rights movement. What can we do to build a bigger movement for lasting change?

Why The Climate Movement Cannot Ignore Trade

But there is another tipping point that will affect the success of the climate movement: the free trade tipping point. Photo courtesy of Jim Wylie.

The 'Right to Repair' Movement Is Being Led by Farmers

Green (Living) Review

The right to repair movement is an effort to loosen laws to allow consumers to be able to fix technology without sending it back to the original manufacturer. Farmers are pushing back against legislation that prevents them from fixing their own equipment. If successful, it will be a huge victory for consumers. A major national group has adopted a policy to fight for the right to repair electronics, but it might not be the one you'd expect: farmers.

The traditional foods movement calls you back to the kitchen, and allows you to weave the connections between the food on your table, the time you take to prepare it and the farms that produce it. The traditional foods movement is a fad-free approach to cooking and eating that emphasizes nutrient-dense food, and values quality, environment and community over the convenience of processed products. There is a movement afoot to restore this way of eating.

Building a UK Youth Movement for Conservation

The Transition Movement and the Working Class

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Attracting the working class Transition Towns and the Transition Movement as a whole suffer from an image problem in that the ordinary man and woman in the street seem to see it as something only for the better of middle and upper classes; for those “who can afford it”, and those in predominately rural settings. The Green Movement and the Transition Movement have so far, in the main, been unable to touch the working class and this must change.

McKibben To Environment Movement: ‘Be More Confrontational’

Still, it’s clear that the movement is new and developing so McKibben advises that we give it a gentle nudge in the right direction if it strays from the green path. I speak to the recently arrested environmental author Bill McKibben, who insists that campaigners need to be more confrontational about their demands (and start wearing ties). I think it’s fairly safe to say that Bill McKibben has had an eventful couple of weeks.

Futuristic aviary design uses piezoelectric energy to mimic bird movements

Responding directly to the density of bird movement, the facade appears to “flutter” as the environment changes. The pile grid is anchored through concrete to enable it to rise and fall according to the substructure movement, all while maintaining equilibrium inside the aviary.

Can cell phones track your movements when turned off

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The short and simple answer here is an emphatic NO, whatever conspiracy theorists and those wishing to sell you gadgets are trying to claim. One caveat I would like to add there and that is if a cell phone would be fitted with a GPS tracker that is kept active without the phone being on tracking would be possible. However, so far as I understand none of the phone around currently, even if they are fully GPS equipped, transmit a signal when they are turned off. Period.
