Since the launch of RU, less than a year ago, we have attracted members with all kinds of knowledge. This includes people who have advanced IT skills. As a result, we have already made initial moves towards a site rebuild. WE are all very excited about this.
To help out with this or to find out more, please contact the Site Team.
RU Garden is a where we meet via zoom, informally, to ask questions, brainstorm, use the network as a sounding board, act as a sounding board to others, muse on the topic of parsoc and how it relates (or doesn't yet relate) to our lives and work, gain perspectives from different locations and situations, and to just become more socially connected.
To find out more, go to the RU Garden channel on RU's Discord server.
RU Participating is a monthly publication of all the goings on at RU. Like all RU projects, the newsletter is based on participatory values - all members are encouraged to submit content as often as desired. The task of compiling submissions and facilitating this publication is done by volunteers, and rotates after every few editions. If you have questions, or would like to volunteer to work on a future edition, jump into the Newsletter channel on RU’s Discord. And don’t forget to submit your own picks for recommendations on books, podcasts, music, movies, comedy, cultural content, whatever! The goal of the newsletter is to share, develop, connect, record, and celebrate our work. We hope it is also entertaining, inspiring, and a source of solidarity.
Submissions can be posted here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10u6ezV4VWWO-mT8CuPtU3wJkH8BGBbnqDCLDfB8DDgs/edit?usp=sharing
Real Utopia Podcast
At various Team and Network meeting we have been discussing setting up a Real Utopia podcast. We have some members interested in taking a lead on this. Currently, however, this proposal is still in its conceptual stage. If you are interested in this project proposal then please get in touch.
Work in progress: If you are interested in helping get this project off the ground then please contact us.
We are currently in the process of putting together a proposal for an on-line conference on the theme of Post-Capitalist Vision. We are in discussion with other organisations that share our values.
