Presentation & open discussion by Nani Bengel

The Sea-Watch sails in the bay of La Coruna, Spain, May 22, 2015. Sea-Watch is both a ship and a private initiative to rescue refugees in the Mediterranean and to highlight their plight.

Snøhulemannen / The Snow Cave Man

Film screening aboard Eleonore Ship is back – at least for this one time so do not miss it!

Snøhulemannen / The Snow Cave Man

2010
Fridtjof Kjæreng

Award-winning documentary about a hermit that has lived 30 YEARS IN SNOW CAVES

Surprisingly this time it is not a film about ships, but an continuation of a conversation about “living off grid”, that emerged after Pippa Buchanan’s Permaculture presentation that Eleonore hosted last month.

Sverre Nøkling is not your typical outdoorsman. For the past 30 years he has been living on his own in snow caves in the Norwegian mountains. Always on the move, using a pair of old wooden skis, he goes from one snow cave to the next in search of shelter from extreme blizzards and bitingly cold wind. A true expert in outdoor survival techniques, this wilderness man refuses to be reigned in by modern society. Instead he has chosen a way of life that flies in the face of conformist consumer culture and the materialistic modern world. Sverre’s life is a tale about the quest for total freedom as well as the price one pays in seeking it

Stacking Functions: Permaculture, Transition and Linz

Presentation and discussion by Pippa Buchanan

Pippa will provide a short introduction to permaculture and its ethics and principles along with some examples of permaculture in action. These include the Chikukwe project in Zimbabwe, post­earthquake work in Haiti and the Transition Town movement.
Following the talk we’ll facilitate a discussion around how we could apply permaculture principles in Linz: urban food growing, poo powered buses, establishing Transition Linz or using the principles to supporting refugees in the local area.The evening will be presented in English, but where possible further explanations will be provided in German.

Pippa Buchanan is an Australian permaculturist based in Linz, Austria. She is studying a Masters in Sustainability and Adaptation planning and was recently awarded her Permaculture Design Certificate.
