Small is Beautiful Festival 2016

Small is Beautiful is the Festival that takes place at CAT. After a big event in 2015, we decided to make 2016 smaller and distilled into just one day.  It really was beautiful, and we left on Sunday feeling uplifted and full of energy for the next one (8-11th June 2017). Our Schumacher Speakers this year were Natalie Bennett (Green Party) and Paul Smith-Lomas (Practical Action) – who both challenged and provoked the crowd. Andrew Simms chaired an interactive...

All this will either involve politicians or be showcased to them, so that... Read More ››

Off-grid water works

Do you know where your water comes from? You probably just turn on the tap and there it is. Flush the toilet and off it goes. Most of us have no idea where our water comes from, or where our sewage goes. At CAT we do things differently. We’re completely off-grid when it comes to water – we have no mains water supply or sewage treatment. So we have to think very carefully about how we use this precious... Read More ››

Skill-sharing with the Wanju Ladies Club

There’s a quiet revolution happening in South Korea. People are moving ‘back to the village’ in huge numbers following the economic crisis and rejection of the consumerist and competitive urban lifestyle. For many this is a difficult transition from a highly service-orientated city culture, but there is a group for whom it is particularly challenging and that is the unmarried women who are making the shift in large numbers. These women are not only bravely embracing a new way... Read More ››
