ROCKET STOVES, CAN BREAD & PERSUASION

ROCKET STOVES

We've been on a diet of tinned pineapple and beans for three weeks now. Why? Because of YOU! When you join us in a workshop to make an efficient, light-weight outdoor stove from just a few tin cans. Participants are asked to bring two empty standard (400g) tin cans and gloves for hand protection.

 

PERSUASIVE CONVERSATIONS

Could you change the world one conversation at a time? Who would you talk to first and what would you say? Conversations are so important in our daily lives, and in shaping the kind of society we want to live in, and yet, we often tend to lurch between frustrated discussions with those who already share our views, and alienating disagreements with too little common ground. In this workshop we focus on the role that one particular newspaper plays in making our world a poorer place, and what we can do to change it. Join experienced campaigner Luke Stickels to learn some tried and tested conversation techniques that will actually change things.

 

CAN BREAD

To maximise our tin cans' world-usefulness re-usability factor (WURF), we baked some bread in them before turning them into stoves. That's WURF a lot because we have effectively double-up-cycled them. You can use it as a soup bowl, turn it into an organic stubby holder, fill it with beans or stuff it with sandwich innards. Then eat the bread guts like little fluffy mouth-sized clouds. Vegan options available.
