Come to GAS - St-Imier, Switzerland - September 16-18, 2016


You are invited to come to GAS 2016, St-Imier Switzerland, where we want to co-create a culture inspired by permaculture principles.

On the weekend of September 16-18 we will meet for the 5th time in the tradition of our Beau-Sejour gatherings. This year we want to gather our abundant energies to power something we are calling a "synergy hub" and change the world together.

We will also celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Occupy movement on September 17th. The occupy movement has brought about a solid network that is collaboratively building towards nothing less than a new and better society.

With the synergy hub network, we are setting up a platform available to you and your projects to connect locally and globally with like-minded people. GAS 2016 is an opportunity to self-organize and coordinate this powerful cultural change that we are igniting this autumn.

Whether you are a change maker or want to become one, whether you are Occupy, Transition, Maker, Hacker, Peer-to-peer, Next Edge, Edgeryder, anarcho-this or anarcho-that, social entrepreneur, artist, philanthropist, guerrilla gardener, insider, outsider, this-activist or that-activist, this call is a personal invitation to you.

Fill in the registration form to join us this September on Mont-Soleil, above St-Imier, in the Jura mountains of Switzerland.

For GAS16, we will bridge together offline and online participation. So, you can also sign up to join us online via tools such as Telegram, Zoom and Trello.

Decentralise Now Gathering for the 99%


On the 17th of September 2015, the fourth anniversary of the birth of the Occupy movement, you are invited to come as you are to “the Mountain of the Sun” and join the first Decentralise Now gathering on Mont-Soleil, Switzerland.

We need to synergise our efforts to become more effective in creating a new reality, a new world, a new way. It is time to “Occupy the World“ and create an alliance of the alternatives. This is a call for alliance!

We do not sit idly by whilst we see countries being economically water-boarded by the banks. We cannot ignore the pressures on everyday people that these austerity measures have created. There is another way.

We are prepared for a wave of synergism that decentralises the power structures. It is time to create a culture of self-empowerment, synergy and symbiosis between each other and nations.

We are the people - we are the 99%

Whether you already are a change maker or want to become one, whether you are Occupy, Anonymous, Transition, Maker, Greens, Pirate, Podemos, Permaculture, Rainbow, Hacker, Open Source, Electronic Frontier, Commons, New Edge, Edgeryder, Danach, Neustart, Anti-WEF, Panarchy, anarcho-this or anarcho-that, social entrepreneur, artist, philanthropist, guerrilla gardener, insider, outsider, this-activist or that-activist, or just somebody that is aware - this call for alliance is to you.

It is time. Join us to Decentralise Now. In St-Imier, the home of anarchism... where it all began in 1872. We gather on the 17th of September to move ahead. The main event will be an intense collaboration and exchange that weekend, from Friday evening at 19:00 to Sunday at 17:00. This is an open ended gathering. We will continue beyond that weekend and you can join us at any time.

You are also able to participate online, if you can’t join us at the Décentrale on Mont-Soleil, Switzerland.

WHEN : SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2015
WHERE: DECENTRALE, MONT SOLEIL, ST-IMIER, SWITZERLAND

We intend to make this event prix-libre. We will need your financial support. Please expect to expend what you can afford to pay for such an event. If you can give more, please do. If you know people that might be able to make a financial contribution, please encourage them to do so.

Sign up and find more details here on the website decentralisenow.org, as they become available.

Program of the 2014 Beau-Sejour gathering
Itinerary for the "Finding the Seed for the New System" Beau-Sejour weekend:

Friday, November 21, 2014

You are welcome to join us on Friday already at 17:00 for us to be cooking and eating dinner together.

At 19:00 we all meet for our evening session. Together, we will review and discuss the topics that have emerged during the 2012 and 2013 gatherings and what has happened as a result with the creation of the Permavillage and La Décentrale projects on Mont-Soleil. We will talk about assumptions we've come to last year, like how the workings of current democracy, finance and civil society are all heavily influenced by a single defining pattern, circling around the way money is created, and how this pattern defines the evolution of virtually all aspects of our current societies. This will give us a head start, laying out the terrain we will be covering on Saturday. At around 21:30 we will end the Friday evening session.

Saturday, November 22, 2014

At 9:30 we will start our morning session, prepare and eat lunch together around noon, continue with our afternoon session at 13:30 and end Saturdays session at 18:30. There will be the option of having dinner together as well for those of you that like to stick around Saturday night.

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Again, at 9:30 we will start our morning session, prepare and eat lunch together around noon, continue with our afternoon session at 13:30 and end the 2014 Beau-Sejour gathering at 16:00 on Sunday.

Accommodation

There are beds available for you to sleep in the house of La Décentrale, so there should be no need to look for other accommodation. If you like to stay here during the nights, please let me know, so I can make sure there is a bed reserved for you.

How to get here

This year for the first time, the Beau-Sejour gathering will take place at La Décentrale on Mont-Soleil.

decentrale.ch

You can easily find your way to Mont-Soleil by public transportation, taking the funicular up from St-Imier:

funisolaire.ch

La Décentrale is located just 150 meters from the top station of the funicular.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Invitation to the 2014 "Beau-Sejour" gathering, November 21-23 in St-Imier, Switzerland
This years Beau-Sejour gathering will follow up on the results of the previous years and the calling topic will be...

"Finding the Seed for the New System"

During last years gathering, one central topic that emerged was how the workings of current democracy, finance and civil society are all heavily influenced by a single defining pattern, circling around the way money is created.

This pattern defines the evolution of virtually all aspects of our current societies. This year, we will be searching for new patterns, which can encourage the growing of the new in the shadow of the old.

This years Beau-Sejour gathering will for the first time be taking place on the La Décentrale property up on Mont-Soleil, above St-Imier.

Program of the 2013 Beau-Sejour gathering
Itinerary for the Beau-Sejour weekend:

Friday, October 25, 2013

If you arrive Friday afternoon before our evening session starts and you like to join other participants for a drink or something to eat, you are most likely to find us starting at 17:00 in the Espace Noir, Rue Francillion 29, St-Imier.

19:00 we meet at the World Wide Wisdom Research and Documentation Centre at Rue de la Malathe 4, St-Imier for our evening session. Together, we will collect a bird's eye view of existing and to-be-created projects that we think aim to build the new in the shadow of the old.
